This fully revised and updated edition of Donald E. Weatherbee’s widely praised text offers a clear and comprehensive introduction to international relations in contemporary Southeast Asia. The author analyzes the efforts of the Southeast Asian states to adapt collectively through the ASEAN Community-building process to the challenges of traditional intraregional security issues, the requirements of the international economy, and the political demands of nontraditional issues such as democracy, human rights, and environmental degradation. Weatherbee warns that autonomy, expressed in the claim to the ASEAN Community’s “centrality” to Asia, could be threatened by the strategic impact of China’s rise and America’s recommitment to regional strategic balance. An invaluable guide to the region, this thoughtful and lucid work will be an essential text for courses on Southeast Asia and on the international relations of the Asia-Pacific.

About the Author:

Donald E. Weatherbee is Russell Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the University of South Carolina.

Review:

A superb book. Donald Weatherbee combines an encyclopedic knowledge of Southeast Asia with a balanced and erudite style. His updated edition will be invaluable for students and scholars seeking to cross-check facts and events and for the general public looking to understand growing tensions in the region. (David B. H. Denoon, New York University)

Weatherbee has written an invaluable textbook which I recommend as required reading for everyone in the academic fields of trade and politics and for those with a fascination for this intriguing, dynamic part of the world. (newbooks.asia)
