Donald Weatherbee, America's leading scholar on Southeast Asia's international relations, presents a panoramic view of how transnational issues are challenging policymakers throughout the region. And he does so with his usual clear-eyed sense of the reality behind the official rhetoric. Veteran Southeast Asia specialist Weatherbee has written an insightful and informative study of the interactions of the peoples of Southeast Asia, both historically and today. The work is both an excellent introduction to the complex story of the region and a useful references volume.

This is a very comprehensive book covering almost every significant aspect of international relations in Southeast Asia. It discusses not just "hard" issues such as security, but also human rights, environment, and even counter-narcotics. It works very well as an introductory textbook for international relations in the region.

At times I felt the book was unbalanced with some minor issues (such as trafficking) receiving far more attention than they deserved, while energy and natural resource diplomacy received almost none. The latter is crucial for understanding the region today, especially Myanmar. Historically, much of Southeast Asian trade has been in natural resources (such as natural gas from Malaysia), but the chapter on the economy barely mentions this.

The book and writing style are somewhat dry. This has its benefits as Weatherbee does not push any agenda or IR theory. However, for those looking for more opinions on ASEAN (as well as coverage of more recent events) see Donald Emmerson's "Hard Choices."

I am a novice student South East Asian studies, this had enough introduction of the area along with plenty of detail a long time student of International Relations in South East Asia would like to have. I really enjoyed the organization of the book, help me follow along.
