Textbooks

  1. New Edition - Dictionary of the Modern Politics of Southeast Asia

    "This 4th edition of the Dictionary of the Modern Politics of Southeast Asia by Joseph Liow builds impressively on previous editions by the late Michael Leifer. With hundreds of new entries and substantial revisions of the old, Liow has taken the art of dictionary writing to new heights: it continues to be a critical resource and reference work for those interested in the modern politics of Southeast Asia. Scholars of the region will also find the dictionary indispensable as they try to make sense of the events, personalities, and institutions of one of the world’s most vibrant, but not untroubled, regions." - Yuen Foong Khong, University of Oxford, UK.
