Part II: Potential Essay Topics (75 pts) : All answers should include relevant examples from the readings, lectures and films.

1) Often American's impression of post-war Southeast Asia is colored by the experience of Vietnam. Yet, Cambodia's post-war experience shaped by Norodom Sihanouk was quite different. Describe the king's role in the 1945-1970s period and offer you opinion as to his responsibility in the rise of the Khmer Rouge.

2)  What were the immediate causes of the Tiananmen demonstrations of 1989? Why did Deng Xiaoping and the hardliners believe it was necessary to forcefully suppress the student demonstrations?

3) Choose three East Asian films (from at least two different countries) and analyze how they reflect the period in which they were made.
