Southeast Asia is one of the world's most culturally diverse regions, home to Buddhist, Muslim, Confucian, and Christian civilizations. It boasts ancient monuments of surpassing beauty, grandeur and symbolic complexity. It was the scene of the bloodiest conflict since 1945, the Vietnam War. Today it boasts one of the world's fastest growing regional economies. Moreover, Southeast Asian political development reflects patterns characteristic of much of the Third World. This course offers an introduction to Southeast Asian history from the earliest civilizations, through the colonial conquest, the struggle for independence, and the contemporary political and economic scene.
