Asian Studies Review

"In considering the rapidly changing economies of natural resource extraction in the region, Adam Simpson’s recent book, Energy, Governance and Security in Thailand and Myanmar (Burma), offers useful and much-welcomed new insight in its in-depth presentation of environmental activist issues and networks.

(…) the book has significant utility for students of environmental movements in Mainland Southeast Asia and of the interconnection of resource extraction and energy demands in the region. The book is also a useful resource for testing political models in relation to social movements on the ground. Particularly useful are the case studies of the transnational energy projects, since their scope inherently demands a multi-scalar approach."
