• Gives a broad and insightful overview of democratization in the region.
• Offers a great deal of empirical analysis of local democratization in Southeast Asia that will prove to be very useful to scholars.
This volume looks to go beyond the often one-dimensional debate on democratization in Asia. With an historical perspective, and looking to view change from within, ten case studies from Southeast Asia are presented that illuminate how processes of governance are being altered under the pressure of accelerating globalization. An analytical conclusion assesses the findings of case studies in relation to recent writings on societal change in the region.
