The Rise of the Middle Classes in Southeast Asia
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The rise of the new middle classes in Southeast Asia brought about important transformations in various countries politically, socially, economically and culturally, while producing new East Asian lifestyles that transcend national boundaries and have caused the reorganization of urban space. Based on the framework of comparative politics, this study first examines the regional significance of the growth of the middle classes after the economic crisis in 1997-1998 and pays special attention to the conditions which led to the fall of the Thaksin government as a consequence of a military coup. From the international relations point of view, this collective work by Southeast Asian specialists also uses abundant data to unravel the regionalization of the cultural industry across East Asia.
