This book is not a definitive research statement nor yet another account of Asia's financial crisis. Rather, it offers Southeast Asian perspectives quite at variance to orthodox Western economic thinking.

Topics range from macro perspectives of Indonesia's Economi Pancasila and Thailand's Buddhist Economics, through Malaysia's Islamic financial institutions, to regional and international perspectives of the remaining ASEAN countries and the IMF/World Bank, all tied up by setting them within a diachronic, historical framework. In so doing, this volume looks to open up challenging and provocative fields of research essential for a real understanding of Southeast Asia and it's current economic standing.
