The fifth edition of this widely read introduction to Southeast Asian politics highlights the dramatic events sweeping the region in recent decades. The region's diverse mix of democratic, pseudodemocratic, and authoritarian regimes is examined in terms of each country's political history, key institutions, and major social groups. A survey of economic development and new challenges in foreign affairs, including the U.S. war on terror, political Islam, and the rise of China, also informs the analysis. Authors Robert Dayley and Clark D. Neher cover all eleven countries of contemporary Southeast Asia-Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Burma, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and, new to this edition, Timor-Leste. Book jacket.
Robert Dayley Clark D. Neher is professor of political science at Northern Illinois University. Ross Marlay is professor of political science at Arkansas State University.
