Southeast Asia : an introductory history by Milton E Osborne( Book )

95 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Southeast Asia: An introductory history has been the most widely read introduction to the region for over fifteen years and still retains its reputation as a highly readable survey of Southeast Asia's modern history. Clearly written and extensively illustrated with maps, prints and photographs, it has been revised and brought up-to-date for this seventh edition." "While giving attention to the early history of Southeast Asia, the author concentrates on the changes that have taken place since the eighteenth century. He surveys such vital developments as the impact of colonial rule, economic transformations in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the emergence and triumph of independence movements and the impact of social change and the pivotal roles played by religion, ethnic-minorities and immigrant groups in the various countries of the region."--BOOK JACKET

Sihanouk : prince of light, prince of darkness by Milton E Osborne( Book )

19 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1941 Norodom Sihanouk ascended the Cambodian throne, supported by the French with the intent that he be their puppet king. Milton Osborne traces the complete background leading to this event, and then follows Sihanouk's remarkable growth to political maturity: his transformation from a dilettante king to a vigorous and sometimes ruthless politician. Fully acknowledging his remarkable energy, the book shows how the early years of Sihanouk's successes turned sour as, unwilling to share responsibility, he gradually alienated politicians on both the left and the right. Convinced that he alone knew what was best for Cambodia, his repression of dissent became more vicious and led finally to his overthrow in 1970
