Summary

The first edition of Southeast Asia: An introductory history was published in 1979 and immediately filled a need for travelers and students interested in a tantalizingly different part of the world. Subsequent editions (translated into Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Chinese and Thai) have continued to document with great perception the enormous changes and dramatic growth experienced in the region.

Dr. Milton Osborne has been a resident, student and fascinated observer of Southeast Asia for many years. This familiarity has resulted in a highly readable and lively chronicle. While giving due regard to the early history of the region, Osborne concentrates on the changes that have taken place since the 18th century: the impact of colonial rule, the economic transformations of the 19th and 20th centuries, the emergence and triumph of the independence movements, the impact of social change and the pivotal roles played by religion, ethnic minorities and immigrant groups. He also provides an introduction to the art of the region and a comprehensive guide to literature about Southeast Asia.

Clearly written and extensively illustrated Southeast Asia: An introductory history remains a classic in the field.

'"Still one of the best short introductory histories of the region." --Eric Tagliacozzo, Cornell University
