Warring Societies of Pre-colonial Southeast Asia: Local Cultures of Conflict Within a Regional Context
Editor: Charney, Michael W.; Wellen, Kathryn;
This volume presents a new approach to the study of warfare in Southeast Asia by abandoning the generalizations made in the conventional literature. Its contributors offer a range of new studies of warfare in local areas, which for the first time lends Southeast Asia to comparative analysis in a way that avoids artificial and misleading regional attributes. It will thus interest scholars and students of Asian history as well as armchair historians and military buffs seeking a better understanding of the precolonial roots of modern Southeast Asia.
