About the Author:

Dougald JW O'Reilly is director and founder of HeritageWatch, a non-profit organization dedicated to heritage preservation, and a lecturer at the University of Sydney, Australia.

Review:

Dougald O'Reilly's synthesis of mainland Southeast Asia in the first millennium C.E. makes a genuine contribution to research on ancient complex societies. It should stimulate more archaeological interest in the region, both as a source for cross-cultural comparison and as its own field of study. (Miriam Stark, University of Hawaii-Mano)

As one who taught South East Asian archaeology for nearly thirty years, I can say that a book such as this would have been a most useful text and teaching aid. I am impressed by the wide-ranging and careful scholarship shown by Dr. O'Reilly and his evaluation of often difficult and sometimes contradictory evidence from historical sources, ethnology, inscriptions and field archaeology. (Ian Glover, Institute of Archaeology, University College London)

The work will have wide appeal...the book offers a thorough compilation of recent research in Southeast Asian archaeology. Summing Up: Recommended. (CHOICE, January 2008)

Early Civilizations of Southeast Asia highlights research on the pre- and protohistoric societies of Southeast Asia, with a focus on Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia and Vietnam. The civilizations of Southeast Asia have a long and storied history, resulting in the region's complexity in ethnic and linguistic groups. O'Reilly highlights the archaeology and historical research undertaken in the region, both classic and contemporary, to provide a general picture of the events that shaped early Mainland Southeast Asia. (John Miksic, Asia Research Institute, University of Singapore)
