Southeast Asia, the Great Powers, and Regional Security from the Cold War to the Present
In honor of Sheldon W. Simon, emeritus professor at Arizona State University, this roundtable features a collection of short, substantive essays on the dynamics between the great powers of Asia and the smaller Southeast Asian states. Authored by some of Simon’s colleagues, former students, and collaborators, these essays address a range of themes important to Simon’s work, including the great powers, interactions between the big and small states in the region, and Southeast Asian regionalism and security. In addition to their voices, Simon offers a retrospective reflection on the region.
Read a tribute to Sheldon W. Simon (January 31, 1937–January 2, 2021).
