Synopsis

Praise for earlier editions: "There is a definite need for an affordable survey of Southeast Asia that is readable, literate, up-to-date, & conceptually & factually sound. D. R. SarDesai's book fills these criteria admirably." Arnold P. Kaminsky California State University at Long Beach

Excerpt

I would like once again to express my sincerest appreciation of the teaching fraternity in numerous colleges and universities, particularly in the United States, Great Britain, and Australia, who took the time to suggest improvements in the book from the point of view of the teacher and the taught. Such suggestions are most welcome, and I have tried my best to use as many of them as I could.

In revising Southeast Asia, Past and Present for the fourth edition, I have had very valuable help from Dr. Chitraporn Tanratnakul and Dr. Usanee Thongchai of the Faculty of Humanities, Chiang Mai University, who carefully read the chapters on Thailand, particularly those on the premodern period, and made useful suggestions. I am appreciative to my former student, Dr. Damon Woods, currently visiting faculty at the University of California at Irvine, for his scholarly insights on the history of the Philippines as well as for suggestions for changes based on his use of the book in the classroom. I am most grateful to the Venerable (Khammai) Dhammasami of Makutarama Burmese Buddhist temple, Colombo, for his appreciative comments on the book and for his time spent in going through the materials on Myanmar carefully and making suggestions to make the book free of errors.
