"Nationalism in Southeast Asia "seeks a definition of nationalism through examining its role in the history of Southeast Asia, a region rarely included in general books on the topic. The state building of the colonial phase 1949-1975 is seen as a directed process with unexpected outcomes: it helped to create and to provoke opposition that took the form of "nationalist" movements. Tarling goes onto consider the role of nationalism in the "nation-building" of the post-colonial phase, and its relationship both with the democratic aspirations associated with the winning of independence and with the authoritarianism of the closing decades of the twentieth century.
