Socioeconomic renovation in Viet Nam the origin, evolution, and impact of doi moi by Peter Boothroyd( )
8 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 1,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1986, Viet Nam began to introduce sweeping liberalization in all sectors of its previously hardline, centrally planned, and closed economy. Referred to as doi moi, this "renovation" has produced dramatic changes in the lives of Vietnamese farmers, workers, and their households. Agricultural production has soared. The country now welcomes foreign trade, investment, tourists, business people, students, and scholars. Personal incomes have increased, and Viet Nam is a new member of the Association ofSouth East Asian Nations (ASEAN). In this book, Vietnamese scholars describe the origins and impacts of these changes. They examine how the policy shift of doi moi has affected rural development, urban housing, household economy, and social welfare. Collaborating with Canadian scholars, they draw upon original field surveys, historical documents, and census material to study the evolution of doi moi and its implications for the future development of Viet Nam. Socioeconomic Renovation in Viet Nam illuminates the key questions and issues that policy advisers and decision-makers must wrestle with to ensure Viet Nam's successful emergence into the global family of nations. It will also appeal to development professionals; students and scholars in Asian studies, economics, and rural development; and businesses considering new investment in Viet Nam

The security dilemmas of Southeast Asia by Alan Collins( Book )
8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"By examining ethnic tensions in Southeast Asia the book provides an analysis of one of the security dilemma's most recent utilisations. In particular, the book adds to the growing literature on the security dilemma and ethnic conflict by locating the analysis of ethnic tensions in Burma and Malaysia, among others, within the security literature of the Third World. In intra-ASEAN relations the 'ASEAN way', it is argued, helped to mitigate the security dilemma during the region's arms build-up. The effect of the 1997 economic crisis on ASEAN's principles and processes also receives coverage. The final part of the book analyses the ASEAN China relationship, arguing that China is emerging as a benign hegemon for its southern neighbours."--BOOK JACKET
Voices of Islam in Southeast Asia : a contemporary sourcebook ( Book )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Muslim communities of Southeast Asia are diverse, complex and increasingly influential in the broader Islamic world. However, the extraordinary breadth of practices and views across the Muslim world is not widely understood outside the region, often because of the difficulty of locating and putting in context the material produced by Muslims themselves. This is the first sourcebook to present a wide selection of contemporary materials on Islam in Southeast Asia, most of which have not previously been available in English. The material covers six broad themes: personal expressions of faith; Islamic law; state and governance; women and family; jihad; and interactions with non-Muslims and the wider Muslim world. The book looks at the ideological and doctrinal content of Islam in Southeast Asia in all its facets, while also exploring the motivations underlying different interpretations and viewpoints. This is an essential book for anyone seeking to understand the concerns, language and objectives of the main Muslim groups in Southeast Asia."--Publisher's description, p. [4] of cover
