Routledge Handbook of Southeast Asian Development

Author: Andrew McGregor
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781317535973
Release Date: 2017-11-06
Genre: Social Science

Southeast Asia is one of the most diverse regions in the world – hosting a wide range of languages, ethnicities, religions, economies, ecosystems and political systems. Amidst this diversity, however, has been a common desire to develop. This provides a uniting theme across landscapes of difference. This Handbook traces the uneven experiences that have accompanied development in Southeast Asia. The region is often considered to be a development success story; however, it is increasingly recognized that growth underpinning this development has been accompanied by patterns of inequality, violence, environmental degradation and cultural loss. In 30 chapters, written by established and emerging experts of the region, the Handbook examines development encounters through four thematic sections: • Approaching Southeast Asian development, • Institutions and economies of development, • People and development and • Environment and development. The authors draw from national or sub-national case studies to consider regional scale processes of development – tracing the uneven distribution of costs, risks and benefits. Core themes include the ongoing neoliberalization of development, issues of social and environmental justice and questions of agency and empowerment. This important reference work provides rich insights into the diverse impacts of current patterns of development and in doing so raises questions and challenges for realizing more equitable alternatives. It will be of value to students and scholars of Asian Studies, Development Studies, Human Geography, Political Ecology and Asian Politics.

Taking Southeast Asia to Market

Author: Joseph Nevins
Publisher: Cornell University Press
ISBN: 9781501732270
Release Date: 2018-09-05
Genre: Social Science

Recent changes in the global economy and in Southeast Asian national political economies have led to new forms of commodity production and new commodities. Using insights from political economy and commodity studies, the essays in Taking Southeast Asia to Market trace the myriad ways recent alignments among producers, distributors, and consumers are affecting people and nature throughout the region. In case studies ranging from coffee and hardwood products to mushroom pickers and Vietnamese factory workers, the authors detail the Southeast Asian articulations of these processes while also discussing the broader implications of these shifts. Taken together, the cases show how commodities illuminate the convergence of changing social forces in Southeast Asia today, as they transform the terms, practices, and experiences of everyday life and politics in the global economy.

Indigenous Fermented Foods of Southeast Asia

Author: J. David Owens
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781439844809
Release Date: 2014-12-10
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Brings Together Current Knowledge and State-of-the-Art Information on Indigenous Fermented Foods Fermented foods and beverages span a range of root crops, cereals, pulses, vegetables, nuts, fruits, and animal products. Southeast Asia has a long history of utilizing fermentation in the production and preservation of foods, and is widely recognized for its prominent use. Indigenous Fermented Foods of Southeast Asia examines some indigenous fermented foods of Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines, focusing on the chemical, microbiological, and technological factors associated with their manufacture, quality, and safety. This text establishes a need for an adequate understanding of the fermentation process to ensure safe and reliable practices, as well as the consistent production of a quality product. The authors describe the production, microbiology, biochemistry, nutritional value, and dietary roles of a wide variety of indigenous fermented foods of Southeast Asia. Emphasizing the microbiological and biochemical processes in fermentations and examining the factors that influence the development of the characteristic microflora and chemical changes induced, they accurately describe each process and critically evaluate the roles of microbes in the fermentation. The classification of products is based on their microbial ecology (i.e. the predominant microbes involved), and the text includes examples of every major category of fermented food. The book covers tempe, starter cultures, sweet/sour/alcoholic rice and cassava fermentations, alcoholic fermentations, soy sauce, Bacillus fermentations, and lactic acid bacterial fermentations of vegetables, durian fruit, rice noodles, meats, and sea foods. This book answers a series of basic questions addressing: Dominant/desired microbes Suitable factors in processing and the environment Commonly present microbes Compounds utilized as major carbon and energy sources Sources of fermentable carbohydrates Main biochemical activities and chemical changes True yield of product per kilogram of initial raw materials Possible hazards associated with a product How possible hazards may be minimized or eliminated Research needs and opportunities Indigenous Fermented Foods of Southeast Asia evaluates the state of scientific knowledge of the fermentations and identifies specific questions that need to be answered in order to promote the reproducibility, safety and future prospects of these fermented foods.

Resource Management and Contested Territories in East Asia

Author: R. Emmers
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9781137310149
Release Date: 2013-01-31
Genre: Political Science

Ralf Emmers discusses the significance of natural resources as a source of inter-state cooperation and competition in East Asia, assessing whether the joint exploration and development of resources can act as a means to reduce tensions in contested territories. Does the joint management of natural resources in the absence of a negotiated maritime delimitation constitute a feasible strategy to de-escalate maritime sovereignty disputes in East Asia? Can cooperative resource exploitation be separated from nationalist considerations and power politics calculations? Alternatively, should the prospect for joint exploration in disputed waters be expected to raise rather than defuse territorial conflicts, especially if abundant resources are eventually discovered? If this were true, should exploration schemes be postponed until sovereignty disputes have been resolved? Emmers addresses these questions by examining the overlapping sovereignty claims in the Sea of Japan and the East and South China Seas.

Poverty Reduction through Sustainable Fisheries

Author: Roehlano M Briones
Publisher: Institute of Southeast Asian Studies
ISBN: 9789812308825
Release Date: 2008
Genre: Business & Economics

"Beyond previous more simplistic approaches, this book takes a giant step towards understanding and translating into people-centered policies the actual position and complexity of fish production in Southeast Asian economies. Tackling how fi sheries and aquaculture are embedded in local and household economies and linked through dynamic supply chains to more distant, even global markets, the book makes essential policy and analytical recommendations. SEARCA and ISEAS have made a major contribution to the intellectual debate and action agenda for Southeast Asian fisheries."
