Hack, Karl (2003). Theories and approaches to British decolonization in southeast Asia. In: Frey, Marc; Preussen, Ronald W and Tan, Tai Yong eds. The Transformation of Southeast Asia. New York, NY U.S.: M.E. Sharpe, pp. 105–126.



About the book:
This book provides the basis for a reconceptualization of key features in Southeast Asia's history. Scholars from Europe, America, and Asia examine evolutionary patterns of Europe's and Japan's Southeast Asian empires from the late nineteenth century through World War II, and offer important insights into the specific events of the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s.

Drawing on new and wide-ranging research in international relations, economics, anthropology, and cultural studies, the book looks at the impact of decolonization and the struggle of the new nation-states with issues such as economic development, cultural development, nation-building, ideology, race, and modernization. The contributors also consider decolonization as a phenomenon within the larger international structure of the Cold War and the post-Cold War eras.
