This is an excellent accounting of a very complex and important situation in the history of South East Asian colonialism and nationalism which continues to have impact on current events and will probably have more in the future. The potential problems of the artificial boundries of "nations by design" created in the two post WWII decades persist into the 21st Century in this excellent case study. Old nationalities and ethnic differences can belatedly realize their identities in the new nations and they possibly breakoff to emerge as new nations. This study is worthwhile for all serious students of the histories of this vital region and also of the difficulties and limitations of international organizations in fulfilling their idealized roles.
