Corporate Strategies for South East Asia After the Crisis presents an in-depth analysis by experts from Europe, Japan and South East Asia who have long-standing research experience in Asian economies and international business.

They present a comprehensive overview of the current activities of multinational firms from Europe and Japan in South East Asia. The authors address both questions of international strategy and the role of multinational companies in a global economy, while taking into account how national differences affect strategic decision making. More than an essential reader for business people in Southeast Asia, the book will strongly influence policy makers and all those interested in the shift from national to transnational business.


Handbook Of Asian Education

RRP $245.99

Comprehensive and authoritative, this Handbook provides a nuanced description and analysis of educational systems, practices, and policies in Asian countries and explains and interprets these practices from cultural, social, historical, and economic perspectives.

Using a culture-based framework, the volume is organized in five sections, each devoted to educational practices in one civilization in Asia: Sinic (the common culture of China, the Chinese communities in Southeast Asia, and related cultures of Korea and Vietnam), Japanese, Islamic, Buddhist, and Hindu. Culture and culture identities essentially are civilization identities; the major differences among civilizations are rooted in their different cultures. This framework better captures the essence of the diverse educational systems and practices of Asian countries than other possible approaches such as the forms of government or geographical locations.

Each section opens with an overview of the civilization and its history, philosophy, and values that have had an impact on education, includes chapters on both the formal schooling system and out-of-school educational practices, and concludes with a chapter on how immigrants from the civilization have come to live in the West, how they are educated, and how they are adapting to their new homes.

Uniquely combining description and interpretation of educational practices in Asia, this Handbook is a must-have resource for education researchers and graduate students in international and comparative education, globalization and education, multicultural education, sociocultural foundations of education, and Asian studies, and for educational administrators and education policy makers.

Living With Floods In A Mobile Southeast Asia

RRP $329.99

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

This volume contributes to a better understanding of the relationship between migration, vulnerability and resilience associated with flooding across diverse environmental, social and policy contexts in Southeast Asia. It challenges simple analyses of flooding as a singular driver of migration, and instead considers the ways in which floods figure in migration-based livelihoods and amongst already mobile populations.

The book sets out a conceptual framework based on a 'mobile political ecology' in which particular attention is paid to the multi-dimensionality, temporalities and geographies of vulnerability. Rather than simply emphasizing the capacities (or lack thereof) of individuals and households, the focus is on identifying factors that instigate, manage and perpetuate vulnerable populations and places: these include the socio-political dynamics of floods, flood hazards and risky environments, migration and migrant-based livelihoods, and the policy environments through which all of these take shape.

The book is organised around a series of tightly-argued empirical case studies from countries in the ASEAN region, where lives are marked by mobility and by floods associated with the region's monsoonal climate. Specifically, these include Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Together, the chapters highlight critical policy questions around the governance of migration, institutionalized disaster response strategies and broader development agendas.
