About This Book

This volume is a collection of essays from a diverse group of scholars that collectively presents a multidimensional perspective of globalisation in Southeast Asia. They delve into the political, economic, security, social, and cultural dimensions of globalisation and local responses, offering evidence of complex interfacing between the global and the local, thus championing the need for a multidisciplinary approach to globalisation studies. This volume depicts globalisation as an uneven and, sometimes, undesired process, and resists the temptation for easy conclusions to the challenges facing the region today.
