Southeast Asian history is usually written from a national point of view, which underplays the links between neighbouring states and nations and the effects of these bonds on the development of regionalism. This innovative text begins by defining the meaning of region and regionalism and then applies it to periods in history in Southeast Asia, looking at how patterns of regionalism have shifted through time to the present day. By focusing on the regional perspective, Nicholas Tarling provides a stimulating and original treatment of Southeast Asian history, its political dynamics and its international relations. Regionalism in Southeast Asia completes a trilogy of books on Southeast Asia by Nicholas Tarling published in the Routledge Studies in the Modern History of Asia series, the other two are Nationalism in Southeast Asia and Imperialism in Southeast Asia.
