Europeans in Southeast Asia[edit]

What about the Roman trade? Is there anymore information on whether Romans travelled to Southeast Asia or if trade was completely carried through middlemen?

Trade with Rome was not so important and most of it was done b middle men. Even until the 16th century SEA goods were brought to Europe by Arabs who got them from Mogul traders.

Hey, I was thinking of expanding this page after I'm done with British Malaya. In the meantime, it would awesome if somebody could produce a diagram like this for this page:

Ancient Southeast Asia[edit]

The Laguna Copperplate inscription should be the end of Ancient Southeast Asia. Talking about 12th century Islam and the Terenganu inscription should be done in a seperate part. It's not ancient if it's in the 12th century.

Decolonization

With the rejuvenated nationalist movements in wait, the Europeans returned to a very different Southeast Asia after World War II. Indonesia declared independence in 17 August 1945 and subsequently fought a bitter war against the returning Dutch; the Philippines were granted independence by the United States in 1946; Burma secured their independence from Britain in 1948, and the French were driven from Indochina in 1954 after a bitterly fought war (the Indochina War) against the Vietnamese nationalists. The newly-established United Nations provided a forum both for nationalist demands and for the newly demanded independent nations. During the Cold War, countering the threat of communism was a major theme in the decolonization process. After suppressing the communist insurrection during the Malayan Emergency from 1948 to 1960, Britain granted independence to Malaya and later, Singapore, Sabah and Sarawak in 1957 and 1963 respectively within the framework of the Federation of Malaysia. In one of the most bloody single incidents of violence in Cold War Southeast Asia, General Suharto seized power in Indonesia in 1965 and initiated a massacre of approximately 500,000 alleged members of the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI). Recent evidence from the US National Security Archive published by George Washington University suggests this massacre was carried out with the support of the United States embassy in Jakarta, which supplied lists of names of suspected PKI members to Suharto. [1] The United States intervention against communist forces in Indochina during a conflict commonly referred to in the United States as the Vietnam War meant that Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia had to go through a prolonged and protracted war in their route to independence. By the war's end in 1975, all these countries were controlled by communist parties. After the communist victory, two wars between communist states — the Cambodian-Vietnamese War of 1975-1989 and the Sino-Vietnamese War of 1979 — were fought in the region. In 1975, Portuguese rule ended in East Timor. However, independence was short-lived as Indonesia annexed the territory soon after. Finally, Britain ended its protectorate of the Sultanate of Brunei in 1984, marking the end of European rule in Southeast Asia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ronald boyles (talkcontribs) 14:50, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

First Non-aboriginals[edit]

"Evidences suggest that the earliest non-aboriginal Southeast Asians came from southern China and were Austronesian speakers. Contemporary research by anthropologists, linguists (Blust, Reid, Ross, Pawley), and archaeologists (Bellwood) suggests that the inhabitants of the Maritime Southeast Asia migrated from southern China to islands of the Philippines around 2500 BCE and later spread to modern day Malaysia and Indonesia.[3]"

The earliest non-aboriginals of mainland SEA were Austroasiatic, not Austronesians. ~~ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.32.146.119 (talk) 21:48, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
