A Political Chronology of South-East Asia and Oceania

Excerpt

This is the fifth title in a new six-volume series of Political Chronologies of the World. The previous volumes concerned Europe, Central, South and East Asia, the Middle East, and Africa; the last title in the series will concern the Americas.

Although the book includes greater coverage of more-recent events—particularly in countries with a recent history of political upheaval—it also provides invaluable detail on the early history of each nation. Each chronology begins at least as early as the emergence of an entity resembling the modern nation, and in many cases considerably earlier.

In addition to coverage of purely political events, each title in the series also includes details of the principal economic, cultural and social landmarks in the history of each nation. Examples might include the adoption of new languages, alphabets, calendars or religions.

This series aims to be the first point of reference for concise information on the history of each nation in the world. It is hoped that the volumes in the series will enable readers easily to locate self-contained entries on the period and area in which their interest lies.
