Ageing in Southeast and East Asia by Lee Hock Guan

Book Description

Southeast and East Asian countries are undergoing varying stages of population ageing. The social, economic and political implications of population ageing will be enormous, and because of the fast speed of ageing in the region, the countries cannot afford the luxury of time for the gradual evolution of social and structural support systems and networks for the older population. The essays in this volume critically examine national ageing policies and programmes, the sustainability of existing pension systems, housing and living arrangements, inter-generational transfer, and aspects of quality of life of the elderly population. While the findings show that most Southeast Asian countries have started to formulate and implement national ageing policies, they also indicate that the existing policies are by and large inadequate and underdeveloped in serving the needs of the older population and indeed much more must be done to prepare for the future.

March 8 by Lee Hock Guan March 8, Paperback (January 2009)

For a generation of Malaysians, no proper closure to the traumas of the racial riots of May 13, 1969 has been possible. But then came March 8, 2008. The surprising results of the General Election started eclipsing the fears linked to that spectral night 40 years ago. This book offers insights into the phenomenon now referred simply as March 8.

Language, Nation and Development in Southeast Asia by Lee Hock Guan Language, Nation and Development in Southeast Asia, Hardback (January 2007)
