Overview

This monograph is the first book-length study of foreign direct investment in Southeast Asia during both the late colonial period and in the contemporary period. It examines the leading Southeast Asian countries receiving foreign investment this century. The arrival of today's Asian investors, from Japan and the four Asian NICs, is described after a brief discussion of the transitionary period of warfare, decolonization and assertion of newly independent states. Special attention is given to the impact of foreign investment on the economic development of the host country.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Lindblad (economic history, U. of Leiden, Netherlands) looks at the history, patterns, and effects of foreign direct investment (FDI) in Southeast Asia throughout this century. In order to focus on foreign capital flows with an immediate impact on productive capacity in the host country economy, he confines his discussion to private capital flows and excludes portfolio investments. His conclusion is that the impact of FDI on the economic development of host countries in the area is more profound and favorable now than in the colonial period.
