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 472 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 450 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 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes British policy in South-East Asia in the early years of World War II. Britain, a major colonial power in Asia at this time, was unable to maintain its military dominance as war with Germany taxed its resources. Instead, Britain attempted to establish diplomatic dominance, trying to avert the Japanese military expansion and total penetration of Asia, and relying on the Americans to help. This book focuses in detail on Britain's wartime relations with Dutch India, the Philippines, French Indo-China and Thailand. It is an important reinterpretation of the origins of the Pacific War which escalated European conflict into a world war
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 386 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 386 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 271 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 253 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 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The state-building of the colonial phase is seen as a directed process with unexpected outcomes: it helped to create and to provoke opposition that took the form of 'nationalist' movements. Tarling goes on to consider the role of nationalism in the 'nation-building' of the postcolonial phase, and its relationship both with the democratic aspirations associated with the winning of independence and with the authoritarianism of the closing decades of the twentieth century." "Finally, Tarling offers comment on the 'new nationalisms' that authoritarianism has helped to provoke, and their prospects, as well as those of the nation-states, in the current phase of globalisation."--Jacket
Southeast Asia and the great powers by Nicholas Tarling( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Southeast Asia has, on the basis of the nation state, secured both a large measure of interstate peace and cooperation and a degree of autonomy from great powers outside the region. ASEAN both represents that position and promotes it. But it also depends on the attitude of the great powers
