Ranging from the poverty and exploding population of Bangladesh to the dazzling technology and ageing population of Japan, from the two most populous states of India and China to the tiny states of Singapore and the Maldives and to the emptiness of Siberia, Asia contains the greatest diversity of physical environments, cultures and levels of development of any of the continents. Clearly illustrated with basic maps of the countries, this text presents a systematic review of 25 years of development, covering the physical, economic, social and political environments of contemporary Asia. This book should be of interest to introductory students of geography and development studies.
