> The Second World War had a decisive impact on the history of Southeast Asia.
> For the second time in its history the region was swept up into a global
> historical process, and for the first time all its peoples shared a common
> experience of conquest and occupation. The campaigns fought in the region, the
> outcome of the war as a whole, and the manner in which it ended all combined
> to produce immediate and decisive change in the political, strategic and     
> social landscapes of the area. From the vantage point of almost exactly 60   
> years after it ended, what conclusions can we now draw about the Second World 
> War experience of Southeast Asia?
>
> This lecture will ask the following questions: why did war come to Southeast 
> Asia? And what had more impact, the region on the war, or the war on the     
> region and why?
