Dragons and Tigers: A Geography of South, East, and Southeast Asia, Third Edition is the only book that covers all three regions – South Asia, East Asia, and Southeast Asia. It is the most comprehensive book on the market for a Geography of Asia course. It contains updated and additional maps covering distribution of religions, physical features, linguistic and religious pluralism in Southeast Asia, and more. Using a cross-disciplinary approach, the author discusses evolving physical and cultural landscapes. New to this edition is added content coverage on the impact of globalization, environmental issues, recent environmental disasters and their effects on the region, the recent global economic crisis, migration and urbanization, gender and child welfare issues, religious conflict, agribusiness and sustainability and new patterns of trade.
This is a delicious read that visually walks the reader through
This is a delicious read that visually walks the reader through initial topical chapters followed by detailed regional exploration. Landforms, cultural insights, and a good balance of history and current issues synthesize a great body of knowledge that will satisfy an educated traveler. I wish a book like this was available when I took Chinese history in college. I would comment that the author has a bit of a feminist viewpoint.
