I finished my PhD in 1996, a study of the development of sinology during the 19th and 20th centuries. During my academic career I have written extensively on East and Southeast Asian history, in both English and Swedish. Among my publications are Hindu Rulers, Muslim Subjects: Lombok and Bali in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries (2001), and as editor, Responding to the West: Essays of Colonial Domination and Asian Agency (2009). I have furthermore authored a number of popular books on Vietnamese and Chinese history, Vietnams Historia (2005), Kinas History (2008), and Kinas ledare 1912-2012 (2012). I have also conducted research at IIAS in Leiden, Netherlands, and the Centre for East and Southeast Asian Studies in Lund, Sweden. My latest book Lords of the Land, Lords of the Sea: Conflict and Adaptation in Early Colonial Timor, 1600-1800 (2012) is a comprehensive study of early Timorese history from original sources, published by KITLV Press.
