In this volume Anthony Reid positions Southeast Asia on the stage of world history. He argues that the region not only had a historical character of its own, but that it played a crucial role in shaping the modern world.

Southeast Asia?s interaction with the forces uniting and transforming the world is explored through chapters focusing on Islamization; Chinese, Siamese, Cham, and Javanese trade; Makasar?s modernizing moment; and slavery. The last three chapters examine from different perspectives how this interaction of relative equality shifted to one of an impoverished ?third world? region exposed to European colonial power. at UCLA.

From Our Editors

The region of Southeast Asia has undergone many transformations since its early modern history. Its development and influence on the world stage is at the heart of the matter in Anthony Reid’s volume Charting the Shape of Early Modern Southeast Asia. In it, Reid examines Southeast Asia’s relationship with other governments and religion that connected to the region. Izalamization, the Chinese, Javanese trade and slavery are just a few of the influences that are addressed in this study. Reid leaves the last three chapters to reveal different perspectives on how this crucial global interaction changed and left the region vulnerable to European colonialism. This is a concise and detailed look at a divers and powerful region of the world.
