‘. . . for those seeking a fairly comprehensive mainstream account of the key issues faced by ASEAN (post-1997–98 financial crisis), this book nicely fills the order. Recommended for upper-division undergraduate through faculty collections.’
– S.J. Gabriel, Choice

‘This timely publication is essential reading for those wanting not only to understand the background to the 1997/98 Asian crisis but also to reach conclusions about the sustainability of recovery in Southeast Asia’s economies. It is packed full of relevant detail on intra-regional trade and ASEANs wider trade and investment opportunities. In particular it will inform the important debate on whether regional economic blocs are building blocks or stumbling blocks toward global free trade.’
– Roger Sandilands, University of Strathclyde, UK

Acclaim for the first edition:

‘. . . this book is a useful introduction to the complexities of the development of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) economies within the context of the development of ASEAN itself.’
– Ahmad D. Habir, Pacific Affairs


Further information

This updated and fully revised second edition provides a comprehensive examination of issues of paramount importance for Southeast Asian economies including:

• the economic implications of the 1997 Asian crisis for both older and newer members of ASEAN
• the role of government and FDI in ASEAN economic growth and development
• trade patterns with the US, Japan and the EU and the economic implications of China’s accession to the WTO for ASEAN countries
• the environmental consequences of industrialisation and growth
• the emergence of economic growth triangles and their contribution to ASEAN growth and regional cooperation
• the prospects and challenges of ASEAN economic cooperation before and after the crisis
• and the key challenges facing ASEAN member countries in the aftermath of the crisis.

This is a timely and topical book. The Economies of Southeast Asia, Second Edition will continue to be a valuable and essential text for courses on Asian studies and economics, development economics and comparative economic systems in both the East and West.
