Over the course of the last half century, the growth economies of Southeast Asia Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam have transformed themselves into middle income countries. This book looks at how the very success of these economies has bred new challenges, novel problems, and fresh tensions, including the fact that particular individuals, sectors and regions have been marginalised by these processes.

Contributing to discussions of policy implications, the book melds endogenous and exogenous approaches to thinking about development paths, re-frames Asias model(s) of growth and draws out the social, environmental, political and economic side-effects that have arisen from growth. An interesting analysis of the problems that come alongside developments achievements, this book is an important contribution to Southeast Asian Studies, Development Studies and Environmental Studies.
