About this book

The Politics of the Environment in Southeast Asia charts the emergence of the environment as an issue of public debate in the region. Through a series of case studies the authors explore the coalescence of social forces around environmental issues, the process of alliance formation, and the role of state institutions, media and NGOs in the complex political battles over resource allocation. The volatile tensions between the winners and losers in this struggle for the environment will make Southeast Asia a focus of increased attention. The Politics of the Environment in Southeast Asia is essential reading for those wishing to obtain a deeper understanding of the social, political and environmental issues surrounding these conflicts.
