Review quote

"As we move further and further away from the European imperial age the historical significance of colonialism and decolonisation seems to grow. Here is a volume of strong essays that investigate the ending of European rule right across Southeast Asia -- comparing the experience of one society with another, and showing how the constitutional and economic configuration of the region has been shaped by the colonial experience. The view is stated eloquently that to understand Southeast Asia today we must recognise that the process of decolonisation is still underway."
