Nations and states in Southeast Asia by Nicholas Tarling( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This reflective and provocative book outlines the emergence of the nation-states of modern Southeast Asia. It considers the concept of nationhood and ways of looking at Southeast Asian history, making sense of what is often seen as a bewildering region. Combining narrative, analysis and discussion, the book focuses mainly on the period from the eighteenth century to the present. A broad historical overview of Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei. The Philippines, Burma/Myanmar, Vietnam and Siam/Thailand is followed by a second section in which Professor Tarling elucidates, in a comparative context, significant problems in understanding Southeast Asia's past and present
From Versailles to Pearl Harbor : the origins of the Second World War in Europe and Asia by Margaret Lamb( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1941 the European war became a world war. This book tackles that process in its economic, political and ideological dimensions. Margaret Lamb and Nicholas Tarling explore the significance of the Asian factor and the importance of East Asia in the making of the war in Europe and the transformation of the European war of 1939 into the world war of 1941. This Asian factor has often been neglected, but the policies of all the major powers were affected by their world wide interests. The global approach not only helps in explaining the causes of the war, it also helps to explain its nature and its outcome
Southeast Asia : a modern history by Nicholas Tarling( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Britain, Southeast Asia and the onset of the Pacific War by Nicholas Tarling( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes British policy in Southeast Asia between the outbreak of war in Europe in 1939 and the opening of the Pacific war at the end of 1941. The British government sought to preserve the status quo. Yet it was difficult for Britain to retain its position as the major colonial power in Asia when it had to pursue its struggle with Germany. The book shows that, unable to maintain effective naval or air forces in the East, the British drew on diplomatic resources to achieve their aims. The British wanted to avert the military expansion of the Japanese and to limit their penetration of the area. They had increasingly to rely on the United States, but had little control over American policy. It is this context that the book focuses on Britain's relations with the Netherlands East Indies, the Philippines, French Indo-China and Thailand
The fall of Imperial Britain in South-East Asia by Nicholas Tarling( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings two lines of investigation together. One investigation is into what might be called the decline and fall of the British empire. The book seeks to analyse the nature of Britain's influence in the world at the height of its power in the nineteenth century and the reasons for its decline. It is particularly concerned with the attitudes that Britain developed, which affected its approach to the interests of other powers and to the emergence of nationalism. The other investigation the book undertakes is into the policies the British adopted in South-East Asia from the late eighteenth century onwards. Most historians of the British empire have concentrated on India, Africa, or the settler dominions. The author aims to bring South-East Asia into that discourse, and he believes that doing so will also make for a fuller understanding of the emergence of new South-East Asian states in the twentieth century. The book will be of interest to historians of the British empire and South-East Asia. More generally it may also interest students of imperialism and world politics
Britain, Southeast Asia and the onset of the Cold War, 1945-1950 by Nicholas Tarling( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This detailed and original study throws new light on the evolution of British policy in Southeast Asia in the turbulent post-war period. Professor Tarling's extensive archival research shows how previously separate Foreign Office, Colonial Office and India Office policies came together in the face of pressures from both widespread decolonisation and emerging Cold War tensions. His insightful analysis of the official British mind-set and the detail of British policy demonstrates that Southeast Asia was perceived as a region consisting of mutually cooperating new states, rather than a fragmented mass."--Jacket

Imperialism in Southeast Asia : a fleeting, passing phase by Nicholas Tarling( Book )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is one of the few studies of imperialism to concentrate on Southeast Asia. Nicholas Tarling's definition of imperialism focuses on the establishment of political control from 1870 to 1914. Moving forward in time, the author analyses attempts to re-establish control after the overthrow of imperial regimes in the Second World War. Most recently, Southeast Asia has become a region of independent states, and Tarling discusses imperial ventures as forms of state-building. At the same time, his discussion reflects another contemporary concern - globalisation and the relationship of the state to that process."--Jacket
Regionalism in Southeast Asia by Nicholas Tarling( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Regionalism in Southeast Asia provides the reader with a historical analysis of Southeast Asia from the distinct perspective of regionalism. Southeast Asian history is usually written from a national point of view, which underplays the links between neighbouring states and nations and the effects of these bonds on the development of regionalism. This book first defines the meaning of 'region' and 'regionalism' and then applies it to periods of history in Southeast Asia to show how patterns of regionalism have shifted through time to the present day."--Jacket

Nationalism in Southeast Asia : 'if the people are with us' by Nicholas Tarling( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nationalism in Southeast Asia seeks a definition of nationalism through examining its role in the history of Southeast Asia, a region rarely included in general books on the topic. By developing such a definition and testing it out, Nicholas Tarling hopes at the same time to make a contribution to Southeast Asian historiography and to limit its 'ghettoisation'."
