Asia is playing the music of 21st century markets, with China and India occupying the central focus of public perception. But what about the smaller South East Asian nations – Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia – that also belong to the greater Asian economic zone? What role will they play?

Karl Pilny has compiled an exciting and knowledgeable inventory of the current situation in South East Asia and envisions a convincing scenario for future economic and social development in the ASEAN nations.

The global economy’s center of gravity is shifting increasingly to Asia, primarily to India and China. Taken together, these two countries account for one third of the world’s population, and their economies are immensely dynamic. This is the first book to analyze the economies, politics and cultures of the two countries, as well as their bilateral ties. The author suggests possible scenarios for the world economy and global politics.

Karl Pilny explains the economic and political developments in East Asia and presents the first discussion of relations between Asia’s most powerful economies and their global ramifications.
