Excerpt

This book results from information gathered during many trips to Southeast Asia. I am grateful to the National Science, Ford, and Fulbright foundations, the United States Information Agency, and the United States-Indochina Reconciliation Project for their generous assistance during the lengthier stays. I am also indebted to the faculty and staff of Chulalongkorn University, Thammasat University, Prince of Songkla University at Had Yai and Pattani, Chiang Mai University, Payap University in Thailand, and the University of San Carlos in the Philippines for their intellectual and material support of my work at their campuses.

During my career as a student of Southeast Asian politics, I have learned much from colleagues who share my interest. I am especially indebted to M. Ladd Thomas, Danny Unger, and Dwight King in the Department of Political Science at Northern Illinois University. They have provided generous intellectual and collegial counsel. Similar support has come from Ronald Provencher, Judy Ledgerwood, Susan Russell, Constance Wilson, and Mai Kyi Win, all associates of NIU’s Center for Southeast Asian Studies. April Davis, Karen Schweitzer, Sandi Holloway, and Nancy Schuneman contributed outstanding administrative support, and David Oldfield, Paul Chambers, Chandra Mahajakana, Bryan Hunsaker, Todd Culp, Ted Mayer, Robert Dayley, and Warner Winborne provided superb research assistance. Both undergraduate and graduate students at Northern Illinois University have contributed to this book as well through their enthusiastic interest in the Southeast Asian region. It is gratifying to have taught these students, many of whom are now among the new generation of scholars of Southeast Asia.

Although I accept responsibility for all errors and misinterpretations, many scholars of Southeast Asia will see their ideas reflected in Southeast Asia in the New International Era. Among those scholars who have helped shape my views are David Wilson, Donn Hart, Michael Aung-Thwin, Ansil . . .
