The countries of Southeast Asia display a great variety of development experiences. Its character is increasingly dominated by the region’s ever-closer integration into the wider East Asian network of primary and secondary production and trade. A second striking feature of the Southeast Asia’s development is the pace and extent of transformation of production and sources of household income.
This Handbook offers a timely and comprehensive overview of Southeast Asian economic development. Organized according to the logic of chronological and thematic unity, it is structured in these sections:
  • Overview
  • Precursors: a tightly focused economic history, providing necessary background to modern development analysis and debates
  • The Miracle Years, 1987-1997: from the Plaza Accord to the bubble and bust of the Asian Crisis
  • Consolidating gains and seeking sustainability: from the late 1990s to the present
  • Southeast Asia in the Asian Century: identifying long-run and secular trends that will shape the region’s future and addressing the most prominent challenges
  • Conclusions: Economics, politics and long-run development
This original Handbook, written by experts in their fields, is unique in its breadth and depth of coverage. It provides a forward-looking perspective, which is likely to remain relevant for some time.
