9780521564434: The Politics of Elections in Southeast Asia (Woodrow Wilson Center Press)

Though most governments in Southeast Asia are widely described as authoritarian, elections have been a feature of politics in the region for many decades. This volume, bringing together eleven separate studies by leading authorities, examines the countries that have conducted multi-party elections since the 1940s and 1950s -- Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, Burma/Myanmar, and Singapore. It identifies the common and distinguishing features of electoral politics in the region. The contributors to this volume, unlike most earlier students of politics in Southeast Asia, conclude that it is not something peculiar to the political culture of the region that shapes its political behavior. It is, rather, the same political forces and structures that shape politics in North America and Europe.

Review:

"By ignoring culture as an explanatory variable and self-consciously adopting a systematic comparative approach, this book represents a major contribution to the study of politics and elections in contemporary Southeast Asia and in other regions and historical periods as well." Crossroads

"Historians of China will, therefore, find this study of Korean Confucian thought a useful reference work. For historians of Korea, this book will be more than useful. It will be indispensable. No library of Korean history, neither in North America nor in Korea should be without it." Don Baker, Pacific Affairs

"This volume serves as a useful reader to the ongoing debate about elections and their (mis)use in Southeast Asia." James Chin, Journal of Asian Studies
