Description

First published in 1957, this classic work on the political situation in Southeast Asia at the start of the Vietnam War includes a supplement covering events up to mid-1958. An introductory chapter describes the general political and economic characteristics of this important region lying south of Communist China and east of neutralist India. Individual chapters are devoted to Indonesia, the Philippines, Indochina, Thailand, Malaya, and Burma. The concluding chapters analyze the international relations of Southeast Asia and describe American foreign policy in the area.

Amry Vandenbosch is director of the Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce at the University of Kentucky. He has written extensively on Asian affairs, particularly on Indonesia.

Richard Butwell is a graduate of Tufts College and holds a D.Phil. degree from Oxford University.
