"[...] Noor, Carey, and the volume’s contributors make an excellent case for how constructions of racial difference in nineteenth-century Southeast Asia were central to militarized violence and colonial expansion. [...] It is a bold and refreshing reminder to readers of how racial hierarchies have deep roots in the histories of warfare and colonialism and continue to influence governance and conflict in the present."

Racial Difference and the Colonial Wars of 19th Century Southeast Asia

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
The colonisation of Southeast Asia was a long and often violent process where numerous military campaigns were waged by the colonial powers across the region. The notion of racial difference was crucial in many of these wars, as native Southeast Asian societies were often framed in negative terms as 'savage' and 'backward' communities that needed to be subdued and 'civilised'. This collection of critical essays focuses on the colonial construction of race and looks at how the colonial wars in 19th-century Southeast Asia were rationalised via recourse to theories of racial difference, making race a significant factor in the wars of Empire. Looking at the colonial wars in Java, Borneo, Siam, the Philippines, the Malay Peninsula and other parts of Southeast Asia, the essays examine the manner in which the idea of racial difference was weaponised by the colonising powers and how forms of local resistance often worked through such colonial structures of identity politics.
