Colonial armies in southeast Asia

Hack, Karl and Rettig, Tobias eds. (2006). Colonial armies in southeast Asia. Routledge Studies in the Modern History of Asia. London, UK: Routledge.



Colonial Armies were the focal points for some of the most dramatic tensions inherent in Chinese, Japanese and Western clashes with Southeast Asians. In this volume, an internaitonal team of scholars cover these issues from Ming China to contemporary Indonesia. Themes covered include recruitment, loyalty and impacts. As well as individual chapters, the co-editors provide two original chapters which bind the book together, covering respectively 'Imperial Systems of Power ... and the Making of modern Southeast Asia' and 'Demography and Dominaiton in Southeast Asia'.
