Southeast Asia in World History

By Craig A. Lockard | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This book is the result of a career spent studying, teaching, and writing about Southeast Asian and world history. I began seriously thinking about Southeast Asia in the early 1960s while an exchange student at Chung Chi College, now part of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, where I met undergraduates from Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand. I pursued the academic study of Southeast Asia while a graduate student of the University of Hawaii, where I had the opportunity to work with pioneering scholars such as Walter Vella, Robert Van Niel, and Daniel Kwok. I am grateful to the East-West Center for funding my M.A. studies and my first research sojourn in Southeast Asia, mostly spent in Sarawak under the auspices of the Sarawak Museum. My Ph.D. studies in Southeast Asian and comparative world history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison allowed me to work with another set of outstanding scholars, among them Philip Curtin, Fred Von Der Mehden, Tonggoel Siagian, Dan Doeppers, Jim Scott, and especially John Smail. A grant from Wisconsin enabled me to do Ph.D. research in Sarawak. During my career teaching Asian, African, and world history at the University of Bridgeport, SUNY-Stony Brook, SUNY-Buffalo and, since 1975, at the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay, I have benefited greatly from my colleagues and students. The Fulbright-Hays program sponsored two year-long appointments at the University of Malaya, first in the History Department and then at the Institute of Advanced Study, allowing me to learn much from the Malaysian academic community.

I would also like to acknowledge the inspiration from the Southeast Asian Studies community worldwide, especially my colleagues and friends in the Association for Asian Studies and the Malaysia-Singapore-Brunei Studies Group. I cannot mention everyone who has provided intellectual stimulation, scholarly insight, and personal support, but would single out for special thanks Jack Larkin, Guy Gran, Paul Rodell, Rich O’Connor, Marc Jason Gilbert, Lynda Shaffer, Bill Frederick, Norman Owen, John Whitmore, David Chandler, Michael Aung Thwin, Ed Moise, Barbara and Leonard Andaya, Carl Trocki, Tony Reid, Thongchai Winichakul, Al McCoy, Don Emmerson, Clark Neher, Jean Taylor, Laurie Sears, Jim Rush, Norm Parmer, Ron Provencher, John Lent, Judy Nagata, Sharon Carstens, Don Nonini, Michael Leigh, Edwin Lee, Paul Kratoska, James Chin, Khoo Kay Kim, Steve Milne, Diane Mauzy, Kent and Lian Mulliner, Ben Kirkvliet, Greg Felker, Bridget Walsh, Meredith Weiss,
