Amitav Acharya has written a splendidly ambitious book. Travelling from the discipline of International Relations to the historiography of Southeast Asia and back again, it draws upon a range of methodologies to analyse the issue of identity in the configuration of Southeast Asia. But it provides more than an academic assessment. With this book, Acharya must be judged to have contributed not just to the study of Southeast Asian regionalism, but to the process itself."" - Anthony Milner, Basham Professor of Asian History, Australian National University.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"As an introduction to the region, there is no better-written or more comprehensive volume available." Robert H. Taylor, Asian Affairs"


"The book highHghts patterns of interaction and socialization among key actors in the region, along with those actors' perceptions of factors and forces external to the region that must be managed by the individual states and by the principal regional organization, ASEAN, which, understandably, continues to be marked by stress and strain. Well written and readable." Choice (December 2013)"


"This comprehensive study is an updated and expanded version of the author'sThe Quest for Identity: International Relations of Southeast Asia (Oxford UniversityPress, 2000). It adds to the original a solid overview of the international-relationspolicies that have shaped Southeast Asia since 1945, and an account of the developmentssince the Asian crisis of the late 1990s.... [It]should be read by every student of Southeast Asia." Vincent Houben, Bulletin of Indonesian Economic Studies(2013)"


"The debates that the book will engender promise to be fierce and constructive. Making is quickly becoming required reading for graduate courses around the Pacific. It can also be used in undergraduate teaching. . . . And it is just the libretto that often-puzzled Western diplomats and political leaders need for understanding the history, players, and motives they encounter in a frenetic world of ASEAN diplomacy, of which they are a welcome but peripheral part." Paul Evans, Pacific Affairs (March 2014)"
