Riassunto: In Southeast Asia: The Diversity Dilemma, Sree Kumar and Sharon Siddique describe how intra-regional contradictions and external forces are shaping the region. In Southeast Asia, diversity is a dilemma. Sometimes, it is a critical asset, while at other times, it is a grave liability. This book explains how Southeast Asians are solving the conundrum of evolving a regional identity while continually absorbing external influences. Part One examines the intra-regional concerns, covering issues of identity, efforts at developing common economic growth areas and the evolving nature of ASEAN and Southeast Asian-style institutions of governance. Part Two traces the impact of external forces on internal regional dynamics, analysing Southeast Asia's relationship to the rising powers - India and China, the continuing influences of the former colonial powers and the region's complex chemistry with Japan and the Middle East.

Dr Siddique is a noted authority on Islam and socio-cultural change in Southeast Asia. She consults on urban industrial and social restructuring and political risk analysis.
