Patron comment on 2019-11-08

This short book was published as a follow-up to a development conference held at Chiang Mai University in Thailand. The objective of the conference was to explore the state of development studies and propose ways to update the field of study to include a world currently regionalizing and globalizing under capitalism. The topics covered are theoretical debates on development, historical contingency, empirical evidence, urbanisation, inclusion and exclusion studies, and religious and secular approaches to development. There is a strong emphasis on the diversity of Southeast Asia alongside the realities of recent regional and global integration. The writing contains many academic sources that will be of interest to a student interested in the current state of science as it relates to development of Southeast Asia.
