“Succinct, reliable, historical surveys of each state of ASEAN, reaching right up to the present day. Such a country-by-country approach has real value for the business visitor or the tourist moving around this complex region. No one seeking to identify opportunities and dangers in Southeast Asia can ignore the historical processes that shape the different societies.”- Anthony Milner, Basham Professor of Asian History, Australian National University
“This authoritative, concise, balanced and accessible history neatly fills the gap between the tourist guides and the weighty academic tomes. It gives the reader an authentic “feel for the history”, so necessary to understand the present."
—Stephen Grenville, Former Deputy Governor, Reserve Bank of Australia
"A Short History of South-East Asia provides the essential background information that busy business people must have to succeed in Southeast Asia and a stepping stone for those who want to go further."
—Cavan Hogue, Former Australian High Commissioner to Malaysia, Former Ambassador to Thailand
Non-historians often do not realise the importance of history to the present and future directions of nations. Lee Kuan Yew, the legendary Senior Minister of Singapore summed it up when he once stated "to understand the present and anticipate the future, one must know enough of the past enough to have a sense of history of a people". A Short History of South-East Asia, now in its third updated edition, is written around that quote and is primarily for businessmen and other non-historians. The objective is that readers come away from reading each chapter with a "feel" for the history of the particular nation and a sense of how that might be relevant to their current and future business or other activities.
