I highly recommend "ASEAN, Sovereignty and Intervention in Southeast Asia" by Lee Jones. Fantastic analysis of the international relations of ASEAN and particularly the myth of non-intervention.
Looking East to Look West: Lee Kuan Yew's Mission India by Sunanda K. Datta-Ray on Singapore and India. The only book on the subject.
I would like to inform you that the first ever ‘Archaeology Issue’ of the Journal of Southeast Asian Studies has just been published. It explores questions regarding the transition from “pre-history” to “history” (viz. late Iron Age to Early polities such as Dvaravati, Pyu, Zhenla etc.) in Mainland Southeast Asia. I have attached the table of contents for your perusal.

I would recommend Michael Leifer's Dictionary of the modern politics of South-East Asia, - 3. ed. (London : Routledge, 2001). Even though it is a little dated, as he passed away in 2001, some of the things there are still useful.
I would definitely include Joseph Liow's new book 'Religion and Nationalism in Southeast Asia' published by Cambridge U Press, 2016.
Stanley Karnow's In Our Image (re: Philippines) worked well in my undergraduate class this semester.
