This is more than a hagiography, however. Its chapters on Laos especially make significant contributions to their field. Engaging Asia is thus a volume that will stimulate and satisfy, while also honouring a scholar whose unusual career took him from marine biologist to war correspondent to respected scholar of Southeast Asian politics and history.
