Description

Amitav Acharya has written a splendidly ambitious book. Travelling from the discipline of International Relations to the historiography of Southeast Asia and back again, it draws upon a range of methodologies to analyse the issue of identity in the configuration of Southeast Asia. But it provides more than an academic assessment. With this book, Acharya must be judged to have contributed not just to the study of Southeast Asian regionalism, but to the process itself." - Anthony Milner, Basham Professor of Asian History, Australian National University.show more

Review quote

"The debates that the book will engender promise to be fierce and constructive. Making is quickly becoming required reading for graduate courses around the Pacific. It can also be used in undergraduate teaching. . . . And it is just the libretto that often-puzzled Western diplomats and political leaders need for understanding the history, players, and motives they encounter in a frenetic world of ASEAN diplomacy, of which they are a welcome but peripheral part." Paul Evans, Pacific Affairs (March 2014)"show more
