Book Talk: Eve Zucker and Ben Kiernan introduce their new book, Political Violence in Southeast Asia since 1945: Cases from Six Countries
Hosted by NIAS and NYSEAN, 9.30 EST, 15.30 CET, Wednesday 28 April 2021 This anthology of 17 chapters examines waves of political violence that impacted six Southeast Asian countries – Indonesia, Burma/Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam – from the wars of independence in the mid-twentieth century to America's Indochina Wars to the recent Rohingya genocide. Despite the variety of cases, some surprising historical and thematic connections link them. In our era of global social and political transition, this volume offers an opportunity to consider the potential repercussions of current political and ideological positionings and policies. Enhancing our understanding of the technologies, techniques, motives, causes, consequences, and connections between violent episodes in Southeast Asia, the book raises key questions for the study of mass violence worldwide.
