Abstract

In this chapter I wish to take a look at the big picture as well as the little portraits, or to put it another way, at “the abstract�? and “the empirical,�? of not only “globalization�? but also of “development.�? Viewed from a historical perspective, these are indeed two closely intertwined phenomena. “Development�? here refers to the modernization project that came with decolonization soon after the Second World War and that continued with increasing speed during the cold war. Recent discourse on globalization seems to be too contemporary and/or ahistorical as it ignores the fact that many countries around the world, especially in Southeast Asia, are still in the embrace, or throes, of the “modernization-development�? project. Indeed “development�? and “globalization�? co-exist, and each has had different effects in different sectors of the society (Roberts and Hite 2000). For example, in Malaysia we still have, on the one hand, hunters-and-gatherers living off the endangered tropical forest and, on the other hand, “headhunters�? of the corporate kind surviving in the postmodern polluted concrete jungle of Kuala Lumpur. Some sectors of this astonishing variety of societal forms in Malaysia have now been impacted by globalization while others are still struggling to become modern.
