About the publication

Southeast Asian Affairs, of which there are now twenty-three in the series, is an annual on the political, economic and social trends and developments in Southeast Asia. First published in 1974, Southeast Asian Affairs represented then, as it still does now, a unique collection of analyses on contemporary Southeast Asia by contributors primarily from the region and reflecting the viewpoint of the region.
           Designed to be easily readable yet in-depth, informative yet analytical, issue-focused yet providing a background, the annual has come to be a useful tool for all serious students, academics, diplomats, senior executives, journalists and publicists who seek to understand the dynamics of Southeast Asian developments.
           Southeast Asian Affairs 1996, like the previous volumes, is divided into two parts. The first part consists of articles that provide the regional and ASEAN overviews. The second focuses on internal developments in each of the ten Southeast Asian countries. There is a state-of-the-nation analysis as well as articles devoted to a salient issue or significant theme for selected countries.
