No Man's Land:
Globalization, Territory and Clendestine Groups
in Southeast Asia
New. It's probably a little known fact that many unrepresentative Governments have ceded much control of significant tracts of country - the "no man's land" of the book's title - to rebel groups. In Southeast Asia examples include Burma/Myanmar, the Phillipines, Thailand and Indonesia. This last country is the principal focus of this book. The author, through extensive interviews and examination of documentary records, discovers how such groups cope with modern technology, their place in the "global war on terror" and how and when geography still matters. Hastings contrasts and compares the operations of Jemaah Islamiyah, the Free Aceh Movement and organised crime within their local and the Southeast Asian environments. The book is divided into three parts
- I - Grappling with Territory in a Globalizing World,
- II - Territory and Transnational Terrorism &
- III - Extensions: Southeast Asia and Beyond.
- There are also notes, a bibliography and an index as well as tables, figures and maps. 256 pages.
