About this book

The environment is one of the defining issues of our times, and it is closely linked to questions and dilemmas surrounding economic development. Southeast Asia is one of the world's most economically and demographically dynamic regions, and it is also one in which a host of environmental issues raise themselves.

The Routledge Handbook of the Environment in Southeast Asia is a collection of 30 chapters dealing with the most significant scholarly debates in this rapidly growing field of study. Structured in four main parts, it gives a comprehensive regional overview of, and insight into, the environment in Southeast Asia.

Wide-ranging and balanced, Routledge Handbook of the Environment in Southeast Asia promotes scholarly understanding of how environmental issues are dealt with from diverse theoretical perspectives. It offers a detailed empirical understanding of the myriad environmental problems and challenges faced in Southeast Asia. This is the first publication of its kind in this field; a helpful companion for a global audience and for scholars of Southeast Asian studies from a variety of disciplines.

Media reviews

"Capable tied together by Hirsch, this edited volumes serves as a very useful intermediate to advanced primer for those who want to quickly grasp the diversity of issues surrounding the environment, and the dilemmas that relate environmnetal change to communities, politics and economic development in Southeast Asia."
– Lee Poh Onn, Contemporary Southeast Asia, Vol. 39 No. 2, August 2017

"In general, the consequences of mistaken policies which neglect the environment are not realized until much later. This volume offers: renewed perspectives that the environment is central to economic development; and a detailed look on an often overlooked relted component – the context which frames the environment."
– Seck Tan, Journal of Southeast Asian Economics, Vol. 34 No. 3, December 2017
