There were many Marco Polo going to China, The Portuguese sailing to the Philippines around the same era, The Crusades and the many multicultural traders and mercenaries travelling along the Silk Road Route brought along with them both Islam and Christianity, which eventually found its way to Southe…ast Asia. Many sailors, mercenaries, religious savants, slaves, and traders of both religions travelled and worked side by side. No doubt, as in any war, The Crusades probably also had many warriors who changed loyalties, committed war crimes, or became pacifists and took off on their own along the Silk Road to distant lands unknown. The Silk Road's major artery was between The East Coast of China and Constantinople (Istanbul, Turkey) with a smaller offshoot reaching as far as Italy. However other minor arteries went to Arabia, India, Korea, and Southeast Asia. christife colombus (this note was not added by myself) ( Full Answer )
The history of Southeast Asia has been characterized as interaction between regional players and foreign powers. Though 59 countries currently make up the region, the history of each country is intertwined with all the others. For instance, the Malay empires of Srivijaya and Malacca covered modern… day Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore while the Burmese, Thai, and Khmer peoples governed much of Indochina. At the same time, opportunities and threats from the east and the west shaped the direction of Southeast Asia. The history of the countries within the region only started to develop independently of each other after European colonialization was at full steam between the 17th and the 20th century. Evidences suggest that the earliest non-aboriginal Southeast Asians came from southern China and were Austronesian speakers. Contemporary research by anthropologists, linguists (Blust, Reid, Ross, Pawley), and archaeologists (Bellwood) suggests that the inhabitants of the Malay Archipelago migrated from southern China to islands of the Philippines around 2,500 BCE and later spread to modern day Malaysia and Indonesia. The earliest population of Southeast Asia was animist before Hinduism and Buddhism were exported from the Indian subcontinent. Islam arrived mostly through Indian Muslims and later dominated much of the archipelago around the 13th century while Christianity came along when European colonization started around the 16th century. During the classical age, the existence of Southeast Asia had been known to the Greeks. The Greek astronomer Ptolemy in his Geographia named the Malay Peninsula as Aurea Chersonesus (Golden Peninsula) while Java was called Labadius . Labadius was probably a corruption of Sanskrit Yavadvipa which refers to the same island. An ancient Hindu text may have earlier referred to Southeast Asia as Suvarnabhumi which means land of gold. The region has been an important source of spices and this was one of the reasons European explorers were attracted to the Far East. During the colonization period, states of the region became important assets to the British, the Dutch and the French. British Malaya for instance was the world's largest producer of tin and rubber while the Dutch East Indies was the source of Dutch's wealth. During the 1990s, Southeast Asia emerged as the fastest growing economy in the world. Its successes have caused some to call Southeast Asia an economic miracle and Singapore one of the "Four Asian Tigers". Though the Asian Financial Crisis struck in the late 1990s and left many crippled, the economy of the region has started to pick up again at a more sustainable rate as demand from the United States and People's Republic of China soar. Archaeologists have found stone tools in Malaysia which have been dated to be 1.83 million years old.  Before the latest ice period, much of the archipelago was not under water. Sometime around the Pleistocene period, the Sunda Shelf was flooded as thawing occurred and thus revealing current geographical features. The area's first known human-like inhabitant some 500,000 years ago was "Java Man" (first classified as Pithecanthropus erectus, then subsequently named a part of the species Homo erectus). Recently discovered was a species of human, dubbed "Flores Man" (Homo floresiensis), a miniature hominid that grew only three feet tall. Flores Man seems to have shared some islands with Java Man until only 10,000 years ago, when they became extinct. The oldest human settlement in Malaysia has been discovered in Niah Caves. The human remains found there have been dated back to 40,000 BC. Another remain dated back to 9,000 BC dubbed the "Perak Man" and tools as old as 75,000 years have been discovered in Lenggong, Malaysia.  Mesolithic and early agricultural societies Agriculture was a natural development based on necessity. Before agriculture, hunting and gathering sufficed to provide food. The chicken and pig were domesticated here, millennia ago. So much food was available that people could gain status by giving food away in feasts and festivals, where all could eat their fill. These big men (Malay: orang kaya ) would work for years, accumulating the food (wealth) needed for the festivals provided by the orang kaya . These individual acts of generosity or kindness are remembered by the people in their oral histories, which serves to provide credit in more dire times. These customs ranged throughout Southeast Asia, stretching, for example, to the island of New Guinea. The agricultural technology was exploited after population pressures increased to the point that systematic intensive farming was required for mere survival, say of yams (in Papua) or rice (in Indonesia). Rice paddies are well-suited for the monsoons of Southeast Asia. The rice paddies of Southeast Asia have existed for millennia, with evidence for their existence coeval with the rise of agriculture in other parts of the globe. Yam cultivation in Papua, for example, consists of placing the tubers in prepared ground, heaping vegetation on them, waiting for them to propagate, and harvesting them. This work sequence is still performed by the women in the traditional societies of Southeast Asia; the men might perform the heavier duties of preparing the ground, or of fencing the area to prevent predation by pigs. From Burma around 1,500 BC, the Mon and ancestors of the Khmer people started to move in while the Tai people later came from southern China to reside in the mainland in the first millennium AD.  Early Metal Phases in Southeast Asia It was around 2,500 BC that the Austronesian people started to populate the archipelago and introduced primitive ironworks technology that they had mastered to the region. By around the 5th century BC, people of the Dong Son culture, who lived in what is now Vietnam, had mastered basic metal working. Their works are the earliest known metal object to be found by archeologists in Southeast Asia.  Ancient and classical kingdoms Southeast Asia has been inhabited since prehistoric times. The communities in the region evolved to form complex cultures with varying degrees of influence from India and China. The ancient kingdoms can be grouped into two distinct categories. The first is agrarian kingdoms. Agrarian kingdoms had agriculture as the main economic activity. Most agrarian states were located in mainland Southeast Asia. Examples are the Ayutthaya Kingdom, based on the Chao Phraya River delta and the Khmer Empire on the Tonle Sap. The second type is maritime states. Maritime states were dependent on sea trade. Malacca and Srivijaya were maritime states. A succession of trading systems dominated the trade between China and India. First, goods were shipped through Funan to the Isthmus of Kra, portaged across the narrow, and then transhipped for India and points west. Around the sixth century, CE merchants began sailing to Srivijaya where goods were transhipped directly. The limits of technology and contrary winds during parts of the year made it difficult for the ships of the time to proceed directly from the Indian Ocean to the South China Sea. The third system involved direct trade between the Indian and Chinese coasts. Very little is known about Southeast Asian religious beliefs and practices before the advent of Indian merchants and religious influences from the second century BCE onwards. Prior to the 13th century, Buddhism and Hinduism were the main religions in Southeast Asia. The first dominant power to arise in the archipelago was Srivijaya in Sumatra. From the fifth century CE, the capital, Palembang, became a major seaport and functioned as an entrepot on the Spice Route between India and China. Srivijaya was also a notable center of Vajrayana Buddhist learning and influence. Srivijaya's wealth and influence faded when changes in nautical technology in the tenth century CE enabled Chinese and Indian merchants to ship cargo directly between their countries and also enabled the Chola state in southern India to carry out a series of destructive attacks on Srivijaya's possessions, ending Palembang's entrepot function. In the Philippines, the Laguna Copperplate Inscription dating from 900 CE relates a granted debt from a Maharlika caste nobleman named Namwaran who lived in the Manila area. This document shows strong Srivijayan influence, and mentions a leader of Medan, Sumatra. Java was dominated by a kaleidoscope of competing agrarian kingdoms including the Sailendras, Mataram,Singosari, and finally Majapahit.  Contemporary Southeast Asia Modern Southeast Asia has been characterized by high economic growth by most countries and closer regional integration. Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand have traditionally experienced high growth and are commonly recognized as the more developed countries of the region. As of late, Vietnam too had been experiencing an economic boom. However, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos and the newly independent East Timor are still lagging economically. On August 8, 1967, Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) was founded by Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Philippines. Since Cambodian admission into the union in 1999, East Timor is the only Southeast Asian country that is not part of ASEAN, although plans are under way for eventual membership. The association aims to enhance cooperation among Southeast Asian community. ASEAN Free Trade Area has been established to encourage greater trade among ASEAN members. ASEAN has also been a front runner in greater integration of Asia-Pacific region through East Asia Summits. ( Full Answer )

Geopolitics and geoeconomics in Southeast Asia are changing faster than ever across the whole region, while the global importance of internal Southeast Asia affairs continues to expand. The two issues of the South China Sea and the proliferation of trade partnerships are at the center of the attenti…on of regional and global players. What is Indonesia's position with regard to these two matters? How can we anticipate Indonesia's response to developments in the region? To what extent could, or should, Indonesia develop or strengthen its position? It is my opinion that Indonesia should be at the center of contemporary geopolitics and geoeconomics in Southeast Asia, strengthening its capacity and capability to act as a non-aligned stabilizer and as a major, if not the major, player throughout ASEAN. Establishing and preserving economic stability, while boosting economic development in the region is the primary role of ASEAN. Indonesia as a nation, diplomatic power or economy, can and must be at the heart of the drive toward these objectives. Such is the power of the Indonesian economy that regional stability cannot be attained without us, and therefore could be achieved with our national interests to the fore. The South China Sea has become an important issue for Indonesia because there are now so many territorial disputes between China and ASEAN countries (the Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam and Brunei Darussalam). For some time China and the Philippines have been playing a dangerous game of tit for tat with their vessels in Scarborough shoal, which is claimed by both parties as their territory. Both sides have deliberately raised the tension in the area to the extent that China recently issued a warning to its citizens in the Philippines. The Philippines has a commitment from the US to protect what it considers to be Filipino territory, if attacked. The tension in the South China Sea could easily become an outright war, if not managed effectively. Australia invited the US to deploy 2,500 marines in Darwin, purportedly to respond to natural disasters in the region. It also has the promise of US surveillance devices to be deployed in the Cocos Islands to monitor activity in the South China Sea. These developments have not gone unnoticed by China or the members of ASEAN. The South China Sea looks likely to become yet another theater for competition, posturing and saber rattling between China and the US. Geographically, this is a wholly new area of geopolitical tensions and it is our own backyard. If the South China Sea represents the new geopolitics, then the proliferation of economic partnerships must surely epitomize the new geoeconomics of Southeast Asia. ASEAN has expanded its economic cooperation with external counterparts through free trade agreements (FTA) and other economic partnership agreements. Several economic agreements are now signed, sealed and in process of delivery, with such neighbors and near-neighbors, as China, India, Australia and New Zealand, Japan and South Korea. Individual member countries have also reached bilateral economic arrangements, for example: EFTA-Singapore, China-Singapore and Brunei-Japan. The Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is emerging as an important trade agreement in our region. The TPP member countries are currently New Zealand, Singapore, Brunei Darussalam and Chile. The US, Malaysia, Australia, Vietnam and Japan have expressed interest in membership and negotiations to expand go on apace. While not yet a member of the partnership itself, the US has declared its intention to persuade allies in Southeast Asia to join this organization. Thus, the rapid expansion of trade agreements combined with US promotion of TPP characterizes the new geoeconomics of the area. Like it or not, Indonesia's position is at the center of these developments. On the one hand, we are the biggest country in Southeast Asia, with a strategic position in relation to China, the US, Australia, Japan and South Korea. On the other hand, Indonesia is caught in the middle of the burgeoning rivalry between China and the US on the issues highlighted above: economic and territorial muscle in the region. Non-aligned and caught between the superpowers, Indonesia is perfectly placed to be a stabilizing influence and honest broker between the two. We have both opportunity and capacity to promote peace and security and foster economic development. With regard to the geopolitics of Southeast Asia, if Indonesian influence is brought to bear, then perhaps China can be convinced to respect the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation (TAC) and the Code of Conduct in the South China Sea? Indonesia, and perhaps only Indonesia, has the motive and the opportunity to influence the Philippines and China and lessen the tension in the South China Sea. Indonesia could propose joint sovereignty of disputed sea areas to China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and Brunei Darussalam with the backing of the US and other ASEAN countries. If needs must, Indonesia could impose and police such an arrangement. Under our leadership, ASEAN and China can create a joint security commission to monitor collective arrangements (e.g. maritime security and energy cooperation) in the South China Sea. With strong, impartial leadership, China, the Philippines, and other concerned nations may work together to secure and develop the South China Sea without the current atmosphere of fear, distrust and threats. With regard to the geoeconomics of Southeast Asia, Indonesia can empower ASEAN to reach a common position when responding to the proliferation of economic partnerships in the region. Indonesia should remind and influence other ASEAN countries to act collectively to strengthen FTAs that exist with external counterparts and to empower the East Asia Summit (EAS) as a basis for economic cooperation in East Asia. The US, Australia and other regional players are members of EAS. In other words, if the will were there, Indonesia could bring about a collective effort of ASEAN, the US and other players to promote the EAS as an axis of economic cooperation.

2 big reasons. first, the Japanese had almost no natural resources. Rubber, tin, iron, et cetera are found in abundance in SE Asia, but not in Japan. Japan wanted an empire, and empires need resources. So, the thinking was, "why not take it?" And take it they did. Japan came up with this "Grea…ter East Asia Co Prosperity Sphere" as spin and P.R. to get the Southeast Asian nations to buy into this idea. It was pure hokey. Second, the Japanese fought with the Allies in World War I. They expected to get Germany's pacific colonies and more territory at the Treaty of Versailles conference. The Western powers virtually ignored Japan and treated the Japanese representatives like 2nd class citizens. This did not sit well with Japan, so Imperial Japan felt it was their right and their due to go GET an empire. If you aren't going to be given some of the spoils of war after fighting on the winning side, you're going to go take it. I say this not to defend Japanese actions during World War II. I strongly condemn Japanese atrocities during the War. A Japanese artillery shell permanently blinded my grandfather and killed many of his unit on Papua New Guinea in 1942. Nevertheless I hope this explains why the Japanese invaded southeast Asia. ( Full Answer )

A: Spain was largely excluded from South-East Asia by a papal decision that gave exclusive rights over the area to Portugal. Evangelisation began in earnest with the decision of King Philip II in 1570 to commit Spain to the colonisation and Christianisation of the islands. Following the capture of …Manila, the local chief agreed to a treaty accepting Spanish protection and the propagation of Christianity. By 1595 there were 134 missionaries working in the Philippines, and it was estimated that 288,000 baptisms had taken place. It helped that Christian practices were vaguely akin to indigenous rituals. It has been suggested that the sprinkling of holy water, the recitation of prayers in Latin and the sign of the cross provided an alternative to familiar animistic healing rites. Traditional popular Filipino practices were included in or adapted to Christian worship, in spite of missionary concern. In a society where spirit worship was widely practised, the vast array of Catholic holy figures was accepted as an effectual and attractive source of power. As had hitherto been the case with the ancestors, the names of saints could be invoked to obtain assistance and protection. Blessed by the priest, rosaries, crosses and holy medals became potent talismans. In this way a kind of folk Christianity took firm root in the northern part of the Philippines. ( Full Answer )
