About the Authors
  • In these four volumes, now published in paperback, twenty-one scholars of international reputation consider the whole of mainland and island Southeast Asia from Burma to Indonesia. Volume 1 charts Southeast Asia's beginnings, from prehistory to c. 1500. Accounts are given of Southeast Asia's early development, based on archaeological and anthropological evidence; the establishment of kingdoms such as Sri Vijaya, Champa, Angkor, Pagan, and of the Vietnamese state; and the period's economic history, religions and popular beliefs.

    • 4 paperback volumes make subject area more accessible
    • Each volume begins with a newly written historiographic essay
    • Considered to be the definitive history of Southeast Asia

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...a volume that conveys, in a powerfully provocative manner, the great sweep of the region's historical experience. It also conveys the excitement of being at the frontier of research, confirming that much of the most innovative and impressive work now being undertaken in the history of South-East Asia is on these earlier periods." Times Literary Supplement
