Colin Brown, A Short History of Indonesia: The Unlikely Nation? Short History of Asia Series. In 1981 nests of both species at one site suffered heavier clutch predation than those at the other and were located in significantly shorter vegetation and were closer together. Tufted Duck nests were more successful than those of Mallard, they bred approximately five weeks later, taking advantage of taller vegetation which was conducive to high nest success.

"Explored are relations between China and Southeast Asia across two millennia; patterns of diplomacy, commercial networks, and migration; and how these have varied over time."

The book's description is what I was seeking, and it delivered on that promise.

How did China's view of itself as "The Middle Kingdom" differ from the understandings of smaller nations with competing neighbors? How have such different worldviews been reconciled with each other in the past, and what might this imply for future agreements?

Trade routes, trade restrictions, the exchange of government treasures, migrations of people to overseas communities, the percolating mandala power system where your far neighbor is an ally, the Indian and Arabic influence across the sea routes, the special case of Vietnam's political and philosophical connections with China, the rapid-fire events after World War II... many details, but all in support of the major theme: how have these cultures interacted in the past, and how might this influence the future?

It's a clearly written book, and you might be able to breeze through it profitably. I studied it with marginalia & reviews over a few weekends to try to retain details, but I think that quick-reading could be useful too.

Seeking to understand cultures? This book might help, by showing the interactions among them.

The reason I give this book such a poor rating is not that it is badly written (which it is not). The bad rating is because the book is not a history of China AND Southeast Asia, but a history of the relations BETWEEN China and Southeast Asia. If you are looking for a history of how these regions have dealt with one another and you are familiar with each of their independent histories already, I recommend the text. If you are looking for an overall history of the area, then I recommend looking elsewhere.
