Main Article Content

Abstract

The latest edition of JATI addresses a number of issues that are of enduring significance to the study of South East Asia. Indeed, as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations has become more fragmented as China’s growing influence in the Asia Pacific has asserted itself. It is salient to maintain the study of Southeast Asia as a distinctive cultural, historical and geographical grouping that shares distinctive commonalities despite long standing ethno-religious and political differences. As the region’s politico-religious and cultural character grows more complex in the face of internal pressures to homogenise and external pressures to globalise it is increasingly important to grasp the continuities as well as the changes that impact both on the region and its study.
