Biodata: Alfred W. McCoy
(Dated: May 2004)
Alfred W. McCoy is the J.R.W. Smail Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After earning his Ph.D. in Southeast Asian history at Yale in 1977, his writing on this region has focused on two topics--the political history of the modern Philippines and the politics of opium in the Golden Triangle. His first book, The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia (New York, 1972), sparked controversy at the time of its publication, but is now regarded as the standard work and has been translated into nine languages, most recently Thai and German. Three of his books on Philippine history have won that country's National Book Award. In March 2001, the Association for Asian Studies awarded him the Grant Goodman Prize for his career contributions to the historical study of the Philippines.
