New Books in South and Southeast Asian Studies
Announcements and Discussion
My new book may be of interest to H-SEAsia members who are engaged in research and teaching on genocide studies, history, Cold War, decolonisation, gender studies and politics. It examines the rise, destruction and attempted resurrection of the Indonesian Communist Party (Partai Komunis Indonesia, PKI) in East Java, using a combination of oral history interviews and documents that had hitherto not been analysed.
We have two recent books of interest to this list. Desk and exam copies of these are both available worldwide through Penguin Random House. Info at https://www.shambhala.com/academic-requests.
The first is Kamala Tiyavanich's In the Cool Shade of Compassion: The Enchanted World of the Buddha in the Jungle
The wandering monks and adepts of the village temples, hills, and forests of Thailand.
My new history of Singapore has just been published, just in time for the bicentenary of Raffles' landing.
Michael D. Barr, Singapore: A Modern History, London and NY: I.B.Tauris, 2019
Rather than talk about it myself, I have reproduced extracts from very generous Forward taht Carl Trocki wrote for the book.
