about

The Bibliography of Southeast Asia is a selection of representative English language publications on the social sciences spanning a decade of one of the most interesting times in the region, the last of the second millennium, 1990-2000.

As the decade came to a close, uncontrolled financial and banking activities brought about the breakdown of some major economies (in Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia), kicked in a recession, caused political turmoil, and finally the collapse of the government and leadership of the most populous country, viz., Indonesia.
