Description

Product Description

Much has been written about the wealth of nations, the history of unequal distribution and zones of affluence and deprivation within and between societies. This book explores why some Asian nations are more prosperous than others through an examination of how their interaction with and utilization of resources has changed over the centuries.

Review

"The stimulating essays in this volume mesh well to give a firm sense of a crucial subject for south, southeast, and East Asian history: the role of nature and natural resources. The authors reach back several centuries to provide perspectives that illuminate both the history of monsoon Asia and the dilemmas of resource management today." - J.R. McNeill, Cinco Hermanos Chair of Environmental and International Affairs Georgetown University"This is a pioneering, exceptionally welcome inquiry into a critical topic, namely, the complex relation between social development and natural resources in Asia during the last thousand years. Although the book focuses on Southeast Asia, its wide theoretical interests and the inclusion of first-rate essays on India, China, and Japan give it a very wide appeal."

- Victor Lieberman, University of Michigan"Highly recommended." - CHOICE
