'This is a good short introduction to an important topic.' -- Adam Fforde, Asian Journal of Social Science 'This book by Athukorala, Manning and Wickramasekara is a welcome addition to the literature. . . The book unquestionably provides a useful summary of recent macro-level change and trends in and among the countries considered.' -- Ronald Skeldon, Asia and Pacific Migration Journal 'There is much to recommend this book. It is well written and free of economic jargon, and will therefore be easily accessible to scholars in many disciplines. It provides an excellent overview of economic and labor issues in a region that has been rather neglected by academics. . . . a well-written volume that represents an important addition to the literature on Southeast Asia and transitional economies. It should be an essential reference to students and scholars interested in Southeast Asian economic development.' -- Kavita Pandit, Papers in Regional Science '. . . being useful seems to be the main purpose of this fine book, as there are no new interpretative theories or counterintuitive propositions, but the authors assemble and organize their data in such a way as to lead to operational conclusions and policy recommendations. . . . This is a useful and informative book for anyone interested in the economies of the greater Mekong region.' -- Thomas R. DeGregori, The Journal of Asian Studies
