Now in its 11th edition, this lively and accessible guide to Southeast Asia written by one of the world's preeminent historians of the area remains a classic in its fieldThe first edition of this one-volume introductrion to the area was published in 1979 and immediately filled a need for readers interested in a tantalizingly different part of the world. Subsequent editions 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 more than 40 years. This familiarity has resulted in a highly readable chronicle, ideal for travelers, students, and general history readers. 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; 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.
