"As we move further and further away from the European imperial age the historical significance of colonialism and decolonisation seems to grow. Here is a volume of strong essays that investigate the ending of European rule right across Southeast Asia -- comparing the experience of one society with another, and showing how the constitutional and economic configuration of the region has been shaped by the colonial experience. The view is stated eloquently that to understand Southeast Asia today we must recognise that the process of decolonisation is still underway."Vom Verlag:
Providing the basis for a reconceptualization of key features in Southeast Asia's history, this book examines evolutionary patterns of Europe's and Japan's Southeast Asian empires from the late 19th century through to the 1960s.
