The study of the history of Southeast Asia is still growing, evolving, deepening and changing as an academic field. Over the past few decades historians have added nuance to traditional topics such as Islam and nationalism, and created new ones, such as gender, globalization and the politics of memory. The Routledge Handbook of Southeast Asian History consist of a set of original chapters on the major themes that have developed in the study of modern Southeast Asian history since the mid-18thcentury. The contributions by experts in their field are clustered under three major headings Political History, Economic History, and Social and Cultural History and the chapters challenge, or even erase, boundaries between topics and regions. The handbook provides a stimulating introduction to the most important themes within the subject area; there will be an emphasis on those that have flourished most recently, but traditional topics will not be neglected. This book is an invaluable reference work for any student and researcher on Southeast Asia and Asian and World history.
