Asian freedoms : the idea of freedom in East and Southeast Asia( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspired (and goaded) by Orlando Patterson's theory of freedom as a particularly western outgrowth of classical slavery, this book argues that authentic conceptions of freedom are found throughout the Asian region, where they have emerged in complex ways from local institutions and practices. A prestigious group of contributors explores these adaptations and aternative genealogies of freedom from historical, religious, political and ideological perspectives. This timely book will make an important contribution to our understanding of Asian politics and culture, particularly in the light of the politically sensitive 'Asian values' debate

Imperial alchemy : nationalism and political identity in Southeast Asia by Anthony Reid( Book )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The mid-twentieth century marked one of the greatest watersheds of Asian history, when a range of imperial constructs were declared to be nation-states, either by revolution or decolonisation. Nationalism was the great alchemist, turning the base metal of empire into the gold of nations. To achieve such a transformation from the immense diversity of these Asian empires required a different set of forces from those that Europeans had needed in their transitions from multi-ethnic empires to culturally homogeneous nations. In this book Anthony Reid explores the mysterious alchemy by which new political identities have been formed. Taking Southeast Asia as his example, Reid tests contemporary theory about the relation between modernity, nationalism, and ethnic identity. Grappling with concepts emanating from a very different European experience of nationalism, Reid develops his own typology to better fit the formation of political identities such as the Indonesian, Malay, Chinese, Acehnese, Batak and Kadazan"--Provided by publisher

Islamic legitimacy in a plural Asia( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A global debate has emerged within Islam about how to coexist with democracy. Even in Asia, where such ideas have always been marginal, radical groups are taking the view that scriptural authority requires either Islamic rule (Dar-ul-Islam) or a state of war with the essentially illegitimate authority of non-Muslims or secularists. This book places the debate in a specifically Asian context. It draws attention to Asia (east of Afghanistan), as not only the home of the majority of the world's Muslims but also Islam's historic laboratory in dealing with religious pluralism. In Asia, pluralism is not simply a contemporary development of secular democracies, but a long-tested pattern based on both principle and pragmatism. For many centuries, Muslims in Asia have argued about the legitimacy of non-Islamic government over Muslims, and the legitimacy of non-Muslim peoples, polities and rights under Islamic governance. This book analyses such debates and the ways they have been reconciled, in South and Southeast Asia, up to the present. The evidence presented here suggests that Muslims have adapted flexibly and creatively to the pluralism with which they have lived, and are likely to continue to do so. -- Publisher description
Indonesia rising : the repositioning of Asia's third giant by Anthony Reid( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and Indonesian and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are reasons for thinking that this is at last Indonesia's moment on the world stage. Having successfully negotiated its difficult transition to democracy after 1998, Indonesia has held three popular elections with a low level of violence by the standards of southern Asia. Recently its economic growth rate has been high (above 6 per cent a year) and rising, where China's has been dropping and the developed world has been in crisis. Indonesia's admission in 2009 to the G20 club of the world's most influential states seemed to confirm a status implied by its size, as the world's fourth-larg
Mapping the Acehnese past by R. Michael Feener( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aceh has become best known in our times for its twin disasters - the worst earthquake and tsunami of modern times in December 2004, and a long-running separatist conflict that rent Indonesia for most of its independent history. Although this book emerged from the process of recovery from those traumas, it turns the spotlight on a more positive and neglected claim Aceh has on our attention, as the South east Asian maritime state that most successfully and creatively maintained its independent pace in the world until 1874. Like Burma, Siam and Vietnam, all better protected by geography, Aceh has its own story to tell of a unique culture struggling for suvival through the European colonial era
