About This Book

Although this book appeared more than 25 years ago, many of the issues raised concerning the role of development and the implications of policies taken remain relevant today. A group of concerned Southeast Asian intellectuals and thinkers -- members of a loose grouping called the Southeast Asia Study Group -- critically examine the direction of development being pursued by governments in the region. They deal with issues such as the eradication of poverty, income distribution, people's participation, religion and development, alienated youth, and social justice. Contributors in this volume are: Soedjatmoko, Sulak Sivaraksa, Ponciano Bennagen, Riaz Hassan, WilliamLim, Nancy Chng, Randolf David, Mohd. Haji Salleh, Khoo Kay Kim and Aline Wong. We feel this should be required reading particularly for the young people of today!
