The Institutional Imperative is a well-written and convincing book which draws our attention to four fascinating cases that are not always very well known outside Southeast Asia. the remarkable features of this book is that it provides a single-factor explanation, with the attendant pitfalls to which such an approach could succumb, yet manages to make a convincing argument. The depth yet readability of the politico-historical analysis of the two countries is impressive. -Philip Hirsch, Pacific Affairs, "he book makes a significant contribution to the both the institutional and Southeast Asian literature.

Comparative Politics and Southeast Asian Politics Political Economy of Development and Inequality Political Institutions, especially States and Political Parties Democracy and Democratization Religion and Politics Qualitative Methods, al Analysis, Social Theory.

Why do some countries in the developing world achieve growth with equity, while others do not? If democracy is the supposed panacea for the developing world, why have Southeast Asian democracies had such uneven results? In exploring these questions, political scientist Erik Martinez Kuhonta argues that the realization of equitable development hinges heavily on strong institutions, particularly institutionalized political parties and cohesive interventionist states, and on moderate policy and ideology.

The Institutional Imperative is framed as a structured and focused comparative-historical analysis of the politics of inequality in Malaysia and Thailand, but also includes comparisons with the Philippines and Vietnam. It shows how Malaysia and Vietnam have had the requisite institutional capacity and power to advance equitable development, while Thailand and the Philippines, because of weaker institutions, have not achieved the same levels of success. At its core, the book makes a forceful claim for the need for institutional power and institutional capacity to alleviate structural inequalities.
