Among the recently decolonized states of Southeast Asia 'nation-building' has become a commonplace expression of governmental intent. This study of political life in the region draws an important distinction, however, between political integration and the more ambitious ideal of national integration. The former requires a common government; the latter a common people. It is argued with effect that the more urgent task facing the new states of the region is the establishment of a viable statehood, which cannot wait upon the prior creation of a national consciousness. The problems involved in this exercise in political order are discussed under headings which highlight the key factors in the political condition of Southeast Asia. In addition, this study looks also at the experience of intraregional conflict and considers the increasingtly important questions of the prospects of greater association between independent states, each of whom cherishes jealously national sovereignty.
