Praise For…


"Linda Quayle uses the English School to provide a compelling examination of the complex and often fragile development of regional society between the states of ASEAN. At the same time, she uses the region to expand and refine the theoretical boundaries of the English School itself. What results is a valuable and much-needed theoretical and political analysis of a unique region of the world." - Shaun Narine, Associate Professor of Political Science, St. Thomas University, Canada

"A key criticism of Western-centric IR theory is its proclivity to treat the non-West as little more than a utilitarian source for colourful commentary that affirms rather than challanges extant theory. Quayle rightly deserves to be commended for her insistence and persistence in treating Southeast Asia as a veritable interlocutor whose stories deserve to be heard in their own right." - Contemporary Southeast Asia Journal
