About the Authors
  • In these four volumes, first published in 2000 and now published in paperback, twenty-two scholars of international reputation consider the whole of mainland and island Southeast Asia from Burma to Indonesia. Each volume has a new preface which points to the relationships with the other volumes. The prefaces also comment on some of the research into and thinking about the subject undertaken since the original contributions were completed for the first edition. Volume 2, part 1 charts the establishment of the colonial régimes during the period c. 1800 to 1930 and defines this period as one of intensified European penetration, political consolidation by the dominant states, and economic transformation. Anti-colonial and nationalist movements are discussed.

    • 4 paperback volumes make subject area more accessible
    • Each volume begins with a newly written historiographic essay
    • Considered to be the definitive history of Southeast Asia
