First published in 1997, this volume responds to the rapid change in mid-1980s South East Asia, exploring the uneven distribution of development within the region and providing broad coverage of different aspects of this unevenness at both the regional and national levels. Specialists in economics, geography, planning and South East Asian studies contribute on issues including ethnicity and development in Malaysia, disadvantaged groups in Singapore and the impact of social and historical forces on uneven development in the region.
