About the Publication

Christie's history of the region considers the overall decolonization of Southeast Asia, and shows how, despite the great diversity of the region, issues of identity, ethnicity, religion and "loyalism" affected the newly-formed nation-states in remarkably similar ways.
          It covers the recent history of all the states of Southeast Asia, and charts the problems faced by the nations of the region as the colonial powers departed, and the strategies for survival and growth which they adopted.
