Since its inception 30 years ago, Southeast Asian Affairs (SEAA) has been an indispensable annual reference for generations of policy-makers, scholars, analysts, journalists, and others. Succinctly written by regional and international experts, SEAA illuminates significant issues and events of the previous year in each of the 10 Southeast Asian nations and the region as a whole. Southeast Asian Affairs 2006 begins with four incisive regional surveys, which focus on terrorism, security challenges and economic impact on Southeast Asia in 2004. The eleven country sections with the inclusion of Timor Leste discuss incisive surveys of regional economic, political, and social trends. It also features indispensable country reviews.
