Editorial Reviews

"Robert Weller's collection of essays on globalization and civil life in Asia is certainly timely and is likely to receive attention from a wide range of scholars, activists, and government agencies interested in understanding better how Asia's much-heralded economic growth has become reflected in politics...the book makes some significant contributions to understanding how civil life is developing in countries as diverse as Viet Nam, Taiwan, and Indonesia." -- James H. Spencer, Globalizations, March 2008, Vol. 5, No. 1
