9780765636669: Voices of Southeast Asia: Essential Readings from Antiquity to the Present

Spanning more than a millennium, this anthology gathers literary sources from across the entire region of Southeast Asia. Its 24 selections derive from a variety of genres and reflect the diverse range of cultural influences the region has experienced. The literary excerpts illustrate the impact of religious and ideological currents from early Buddhism to Islam and Roman Catholicism. The selections reveal how cultural influences from South Asia, China, the Arabic world, and Europe arrived in Southeast Asia and left their marks in the realms of literature, society, and culture. The readings include religious works, folklore, epic poems, short stories, and the modern novel. They range from the Cambodian medieval version of the Ramayana to the 16th century Javanese tales to modern Thai short stories and include selections from Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, Laos, Philippines, and Burma.

Review:

"Voices of Southeast Asia will be welcomed by all those seeking to engage students in a learning experience that opens up alternative ways of approaching other cultures. The thoughtful introduction, the careful selection of readings, and the provocative discussion questions all bear the mark of an experienced teacher concerned to enliven classroom discussion and to encourage appreciation of Southeast Asia's rich literary heritage." --Barbara Watson Andaya, University of Hawai'i

"Dutton's compilation offers, in one accessible volume, some of Southeast Asia's greatest literary hits--from stone inscriptions and royal chronicles, to modern correspondence and novels. It includes anonymous authors who localize Indic, Sinic and Islamic literary traditions as well as modern literary luminaries such as Rizal, Kartini, and Phung. Unlike other similar primary source collections, Voices of Southeast Asia uniquely provides extensive excerpts, historical contextualization, and discussion questions that make it ideal for undergraduate course adoption." --Tamara Loos, Cornell University

"The source material in this welcome volume will give readers an appreciation of personal as well as political relations in Southeast Asian societies as well as an understanding of the cultural currents that have shaped the region. With readings from early to modern times suited to undergraduates and an excellent introduction by George Dutton, the book is user-friendly for teachers and students alike." --Craig J. Reynolds, Australian National University

"Voices of Southeast Asia provides a terrific introduction to the Southeast Asian textual tradition and a valuable resource for classroom instruction about the history of the region. The selection of texts is judicious, the translations are extremely readable and George Dutton's framing essays are elegant, concise and chock full of essential information." --Peter Zinoman, University of California, Berkeley
