Việt Nam : borderless histories( )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Crossing borders and exploring ambiguities, the essays in Việt Nam: Borderless Histories draw on international archives and bring a range of ... analytical approaches to the global, regional, national and local narratives of Vietnamese history. Among the topics explored are the extraordinary diversity between north and south, lowland and highland, Việt and minority, and between colonial, Chinese, Southeast Asian, and dynastic influences."--Page 4 of cover

Social history of Southeast Asia
Essential outsiders : Chinese and Jews in the modern transformation of Southeast Asia and Central Europe by Daniel Chirot( )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 1,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this book explore the reasons why the Jews in Central Europe and the Chinese in Southeast Asia have been both successful and stigmatized, essential but not fully accepted. They offer insights into the very formation of ethnic and national identities in the modern world and ideas about when the process is more or less likely to lead to either violent social separation and conflict or peaceful accommodation. Their careful scholarship and measured tone contribute to a balanced view of the subject and introduce a historical depth and comparative perspective that have generally been lacking in past discussions. Those who want to understand both contemporary Southeast Asia and the legacy of the Jewish experience in Central Europe will gain new insights from the book
Mapping the Acehnese past by R. Michael Feener( )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aceh has become best known in our times for its twin disasters - the worst earthquake and tsunami of modern times in December 2004, and a long-running separatist conflict that rent Indonesia for most of its independent history. Although this book emerged from the process of recovery from those traumas, it turns the spotlight on a more positive and neglected claim Aceh has on our attention, as the South east Asian maritime state that most successfully and creatively maintained its independent pace in the world until 1874. Like Burma, Siam and Vietnam, all better protected by geography, Aceh has its own story to tell of a unique culture struggling for suvival through the European colonial era
Southeast Asia in the early modern era : trade, power, and belief( Book )

11 editions published in 1993 in English and Polish and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Islamic legitimacy in a plural Asia( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A global debate has emerged within Islam about how to coexist with democracy. Even in Asia, where such ideas have always been marginal, radical groups are taking the view that scriptural authority requires either Islamic rule (Dar-ul-Islam) or a state of war with the essentially illegitimate authority of non-Muslims or secularists. This book places the debate in a specifically Asian context. It draws attention to Asia (east of Afghanistan), as not only the home of the majority of the world's Muslims but also Islam's historic laboratory in dealing with religious pluralism. In Asia, pluralism is not simply a contemporary development of secular democracies, but a long-tested pattern based on both principle and pragmatism. For many centuries, Muslims in Asia have argued about the legitimacy of non-Islamic government over Muslims, and the legitimacy of non-Muslim peoples, polities and rights under Islamic governance. This book analyses such debates and the ways they have been reconciled, in South and Southeast Asia, up to the present. The evidence presented here suggests that Muslims have adapted flexibly and creatively to the pluralism with which they have lived, and are likely to continue to do so. -- Publisher description
Asian freedoms : the idea of freedom in East and Southeast Asia( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspired (and goaded) by Orlando Patterson's theory of freedom as a particularly western outgrowth of classical slavery, this book argues that authentic conceptions of freedom are found throughout the Asian region, where they have emerged in complex ways from local institutions and practices. A prestigious group of contributors explores these adaptations and a[l]ternative genealogies of freedom from historical, religious, political and ideological perspectives. This timely book will make an important contribution to our understanding of Asian politics and culture, particularly in the light of the politically sensitive 'Asian values' debate

Imperial alchemy : nationalism and political identity in Southeast Asia by Anthony Reid( Book )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The mid-twentieth century marked one of the greatest watersheds of Asian history, when a range of imperial constructs were declared to be nation-states, either by revolution or decolonisation. Nationalism was the great alchemist, turning the base metal of empire into the gold of nations. To achieve such a transformation from the immense diversity of these Asian empires required a different set of forces from those that Europeans had needed in their transitions from multi-ethnic empires to culturally homogeneous nations. In this book Anthony Reid explores the mysterious alchemy by which new political identities have been formed. Taking Southeast Asia as his example, Reid tests contemporary theory about the relation between modernity, nationalism, and ethnic identity. Grappling with concepts emanating from a very different European experience of nationalism, Reid develops his own typology to better fit the formation of political identities such as the Indonesian, Malay, Chinese, Acehnese, Batak and Kadazan"--Provided by publisher
Sojourners and settlers : histories of Southeast Asia and the Chinese : in honour of Jennifer Cushman by Jennifer Wayne Cushman( Book )

19 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Only recently has the role of Chinese and Sino-Southeast Asian minorities in leading Southeast Asia's rapid economic growth attracted world attention. Yet the interaction of Chinese and Southeast Asians reaches back a thousand years, at a level of intensity which makes it difficult, if not specious, to attempt to disentangle what is chinese and what is indigenous in much of Southeast Asian culture. This book demonstrates the depth of that relationship. Ten of the most distinguished specialists in the field pool their expertise in considering the multiple ways in which Chinese have interacted with the region. Jamie Mackie sets the scene in a survey of the Southeast Asian Chinese, particularly during the last fifty years. Wang Gungwu considers their history in terms of the concept of 'sojourning', while Anthony Reid considers the oscillating pattern of interaction from the thirteenth century to the twentieth, giving rise to new Sino-Southeast Asian elites in times of mutual isolation, and to a more 'Chinese' character at times of close contact. G. William Skinner provides a new explanation of why stable Sino-Southeast Asian creole societies were able to exist throughout the nineteenth century in Malaya, the Philippines and Java, and Claudine Salmon shows how one of these groups, the peranakan of Java, coped with pressures to become more Chinese in the second half of the nineteenth century. Oliver Wolters and Craig Reynolds reflect upon the difficulty of disentangling the two cultures in Vietnam and Thailand respectively. Leonard Blusse reveals new Chinese sources on the junk trade with Java, while Mary Somers Heidhues surveys the neglected but numerous Chinese rural settlers in the arc around Singapore

The last stand of Asian autonomies : responses to modernity in the diverse states of Southeast Asia and Korea, 1750-1900 by Anthony Reid( Book )

10 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last century of the exuberantly diverse independence of Asia's smaller states, before the colonial embrace of 1860-1900, has been dismissed as a doomed period of stagnation and reaction by colonial, nationalist and Marxist historians alike. But the newest writing, represented here by 17 leading specialists on the different states of Southeast Asia and Choson Korea, has discovered in these states an astonishing laboratory of autonomous attempts to grapple with the pressures of modernity
Indonesia rising : the repositioning of Asia's third giant by Anthony Reid( )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and Indonesian and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are reasons for thinking that this is at last Indonesia's moment on the world stage. Having successfully negotiated its difficult transition to democracy after 1998, Indonesia has held three popular elections with a low level of violence by the standards of southern Asia. Recently its economic growth rate has been high (above 6 per cent a year) and rising, where China's has been dropping and the developed world has been in crisis. Indonesia's admission in 2009 to the G20 club of the world's most influential states seemed to confirm a status implied by its size, as the world's fourth-largest country by population, and the largest with a Muslim majority. Some international pundits have been declaring that Indonesia is the new star to watch, and that its long-awaited moment in the sun may at last have arrived
