 HISTORY 221 – MODERN SOUTHEAST ASIA 1870-1990s:
It is this sense of nationalism that has remained an influential force in Southeast Asian politics; the very nature of the Southeast Asian countries has meant that creating a sense of nationalism is an important task for the various governments.
Such a mixture of policies is mirrored throughout Southeast Asia, as respective governments attempt all possible ways in which to create a national sense of unity.
Recent expansion of ASEAN to include all established Southeast Asian nations could be seen as evidence that nationalist policies have succeeded to some extent, and more emphasis is now being placed upon creating an identity as a region as a whole, as Southeast Asia attempts to become an important player in world affairs.

While it's no replacement for the many one-volume histories of Southeast Asia available, it will be a useful resource for readers who want more than those can offer, but don't want to start immediately on more specialised studies.
The Cambridge History of Southeast Asia was originally published in 1992 in two hardcover volumes; this reissue as four paperbacks, with individual volumes priced at barely more than paperback novels, makes it much more accessible.
