Southeast Asia beyond crises and traps : economic growth and upgrading by Boo Teik Khoo( )

12 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines how Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam can provide instructive case studies of how Southeast Asia has negotiated pathways of development beyond crises and traps. At two ends of just one decade, 1997-2007, these five countries all weathered the shocks of an East Asian financial crisis and a global financial crisis. Some economies might have buckled completely under those shocks and been condemned to long-term stagnation. Yet these economies emerged with continued if slower economic growth. An important theme of this book is that their resilience has been partly derived from the pursuit of growth and competitiveness along lesser known pathways. The chapters of this book take a novel approach to South East Asia's search for growth and improvement. They provide original insights into actual cases of intermediate ways of achieving growth, upgrading and income improvement in non-privileged sectors. Such cases hold more relevant lessons for the majority of developing countries than the experiences of highly developed economies

Policy regimes and the political economy of poverty reduction in Malaysia by Boo Teik Khoo( )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an original, comprehensive and critical evaluation of Malaysia's 40-year strategy of 'poverty eradication' that has been successful in reaching its targets and yet controversial for being linked to the ethnically-oriented social engineering laid down by the New Economic Policy. Departing from narrowly focused studies of limited poverty reduction, the contributors to this volume of essays have brought together in-depth analyses of economic transformation, class and ethnic inequalities, social protection policies, the provision of key social services, political mobilization, and state capacity for planning. The result is a detailed examination of the scope and efficacy of changing policy regimes affecting Malaysia's post-colonial course of economic development, record of industrialization, and its relative resilience in adapting social policies to national pressures and global changes
Beyond Mahathir : Malaysian politics and its discontents by Boo Teik Khoo( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beyond Mahathir poses vital and timely questions about Malaysian politics after the planned retirement in October 2003 of Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir Mohamad." "The author examines Malaysia's long-term social transformation, the global disruptions of July 1997 and 'September 11', key leaders' calculations of power, and the pitfalls of succession that intersected to produce the political dramas of Mahathir's final decade in power." "Beyond Mahathir is an instructive guide to momentous events that revolved around competing conceptions of what the future portends or should portend for Malaysia, and the contested ways of getting there."--Jacket
Paradoxes of Mahathirism : an intellectual biography of Mahathir Mohamad by Boo Teik Khoo( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paradoxes of Mahathirism is the first full-length scholarly examination of the enigma of Mahathir. As a study of political ideology, it explores Mahathir's ideas on nationalism, capitalism, Islam, populism, and authoritarianism - the core of Mahathirism. Within the context of Malaysia's recent political history, it charts the evolution of Mahathir's complex world-view to reveal paradoxes, alternating patterns of consistency and contradiction, which help us understand his politics, policies, and personality. In biographical terms, it examines the legacy of Mahathir's youthful immersion in the Malay world, the class background to his religiosity, and the medical influence on his political style. At the theoretical level, it offers insights into the problematique of 'race and class' in Malaysian society and politics
Between dissent and power : the transformation of Islamic politics in the Middle East and Asia by Boo Teik Khoo( )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For much of the 20th century, Islamic politics appeared to lie beyond the pale of legitimate politics in many Muslim-majority states. This book brings about a more a serious understanding of Islamic politics by critically tracing the pathways by which Islamic politics has been transformed in the Middle East and Asia. Through the exploration of dissent and power it argues that Islamic politics had not been encased in ineffectual dissent even before the 'Arab Spring' took the Middle-East closer to historical trends of democratization elsewhere in the world. The findings from country-specific studies of Algeria, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Morocco, Pakistan, Tunisia and Turkey demonstrate that Islamic politics has developed a large and resilient capacity for adaptation and reinvention not only in the Middle-East but in Asia as well. Moreover, the international spectrum of Islamic politics stretches from marginalized dissent to established government with political parties and movements competing to different degrees of success for power, frequently by electoral means. This study traces and explains the collective progression of Islamic politics between points of dissent and positions of power, a subject that has not been directly or systematically covered by the extensive literature on Islam and politics"--
