"In sum, we believe that Southeast Asia can be understood by holding in focus its current realities while going back to explore conditions in the preceding two centuries (and more). We need to probe the past, noting what has been forgotten, what remains unaltered, and what has been transformed, striving to understand the discontinuities and new events, to understand how the different peoples of the region--now increasingly called "Southeast Asians"--have managed to sustain their unique values, traditions, customs, and priorities while adapting to new realities, ideas, institutions, and lifestyles."
