In these four volumes, now published in paperback, 22 scholars of international reputation consider the whole of mainland and island Southeast Asia from Burma to Indonesia. Each volume has a new preface which points to the relationships with the other volumes. The prefaces also comment on some of the research into and thinking about the subject undertaken since the original contributions were completed for the first edition. Volume I charts Southeast Asia's beginnings, from prehistory to c. 1500. Volume II discusses Southeast Asia's interaction with foreign countries during the period c. 1500 to c. 1800. Volume III charts the establishment of the colonial regimes during the period c. 1800 to 1930. Volume IV covers the period from World War II to the present.

This is a 4 part series and not 1 book with 4 covers as Amazon seems to `think'. Interesting too. Read full review
