The Quest for Identity: International Relations of Southeast Asia (Oxford University
Press, 2000). It adds to the original a solid overview of the international-relations
policies that have shaped Southeast Asia since 1945, and an account of the developments
since the Asian crisis of the late 1990s.... [It]should be read by every student of Southeast Asia."--Vincent Houben, Bulletin of Indonesian Economic Studies(2013) "The book highHghts patterns of interaction and socialization among key actors in the region, along with those actors' perceptions of factors and forces external to the region that must be managed by the individual states and by the principal regional organization, ASEAN, which, understandably, continues to be marked by stress and strain.
