Connecting the theoretical possibilities of the English School approach to International Relations with the increasingly important region of Southeast Asia, this book is the first comprehensive assessment of this region-theory linkage. It surveys a range of areas including interstate relations, the community-building goals of the region's foremost international organization, relations with civil society, the impact of non-state actors and the role of individuals in regional dynamics. Quayle shows that English School ideas can project a more nuanced and integrated picture of the region whilst regional ideas can challenge English School thinking, inputting different ideas and practices and encouraging refinements and innovations. This book provides an original and refreshing insight into the international and transnational dynamics of Southeast Asia, revealing that both region and theory can gain from a broader dialogue
