The Cambridge History of Southeast Asia
Cambridge University Press, 1999 - History - 364 pages
In these four volumes, now published in paperback, twenty-two scholars of international reputation consider the whole of mainland and island Southeast Asia from Burma to Indonesia. Volume 3 charts the establishment of the colonial régimes during the period c. 1800 to 1930 and defines this period as one of intensified European penetration, political consolidation by the dominant states, and economic transformation. Anti-classical and nationalist movements are discussed.
