This is a timely and topical book.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`The book is well written and well structured, mixing country-specific analysis with cross-sectional analysis. It provides an extensive examination of issues of paramount importance for the South East Asian economies and, therefore, should interest academia and policymakers whose interests relate to regionalism and development in East Asia. The author has cleverly included useful suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter, and a useful index at the end of the book. A paperback edition of over 300 pages costing GBP19.95 is not only value for money, but affordable as well.' -- Anthony Bende-Nabende, Asia Pacific Business Review
`. . . 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
