“One of America’s premier Southeast Asia scholars, Clark Neher, and his co-author, Robert Dayley, assess the major regional players and issues in this new edition of the highly regarded Southeast Asia in the New International Era. Exploring the current impact of transnational terrorism, globalization, economic volatility, and the region’s relations with the great powers, this volume is an excellent choice for students, business people, and policymakers.” —Sheldon Simon, Arizona State University“Few texts available to students contain simultaneously the breadth (all countries, including Brunei and Timor-Leste) and depth of timely information on the latest developments in Southeast Asia. The authors have compiled a thorough historical and cultural account, but also of political developments in a way that distinguishes this book. There are even select indicators that help to define these nations in comparative perspective. I have been waiting for something like this for my course on The Politics of Southeast Asia. Working from unpublished proofs, students have already been impressed with both the coverage and detail of these discussions of the nations of Southeast Asia. I know of no better introduction to the region as a whole. It is exactly what I have been looking for.” —Robert B. Albritton, University of Mississippi About the Author:
