Cities, Transport and Communications
The Integration of Southeast Asia Since 1850
by Howard Dick; Peter J. Rimmer

Abstract:
This book shows the impact of globalization on Southeast Asia, which over a few decades has evolved from a loose set of war-torn ex-colonies to being a centre of global manufacturing. Focusing on cities, Howard Dick and Peter J. Rimmer explain the emergence of modern Southeast Asia and its increasing integration into the world economy by showing how technological change, economic development and politics have transformed the flows of goods, people and information.
