This fifth edition is a continuation of the efforts of the author to try and find the middle path between the in-depth history of the people, and the abridged tourist-outline. A Short History of South-East Asia (5th Edition) (ISBN: 978-0-470-82481-8; John Wiley & Sons) by Peter Church provides a concise history of the South-East Asian countries. Church seeks to give readers sufficient detail necessary to facilitate the development of a sense of history – presenting SEA’s political, economic and historical perspectives in a nutshell. This latest edition also includes a number of important developments in the recent years.
As with its previous international bestseller editions, the objective is to help readers have a “feel” of the history of the particular nation and a sense of how that might be relevant to their current and future business or other activities. With the global climate becoming more uncertain and the threat of terrorism spilling over, this book will aid readers' knowledge of this region by addressing its historical past and political future.
This is an incisive and accessible book that will prove to be an essential read for anyone seeking to identify opportunities and threats in this complex and fascinating part of the world.
