9780810855229: Historical Dictionary of Ancient Southeast Asia (Historical Dictionaries of Ancient Civilizations and Historical Eras)

Anyone who has seen the stunning ruins at Angkor, Bagan, and Barabudur will readily understand why Southeast Asia is the host of so many United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization World Heritage Sites. As beautiful as the spiraling towers, intricate carvings, and delicate bas-reliefs adorning these monuments are, however, they just barely scratch the surface of the immense historical and cultural heritage of the region.

Covering the countries of Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam during the period from the first to the fifteenth century, the Historical Dictionary of Ancient Southeast Asia helps us comprehend the vast and complex history of the region through a chronology, a glossary, a bibliography, an introduction, appendixes, maps, photographs, diagrams, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on the major (and many minor) sites, the more significant historical figures, the kingdoms they ruled over, the economic and social relations between them, and the artistic, cultural, and religious context.

About the Author:

John N. Miksic is Associate Professor in the Southeast Asian Studies Programme, National University of Singapore.

Review:

This dictionary provides a useful tool for the understanding and reconstruction of the early history of this important region of Asia. (American Reference Books Annual, March 2008)

The volume is an excellent resource book...Miksic has attempted to balance the entries across the region, making this a reference volume for any university library and a good resource for scholars....Miksic is to be complimented not just on academic grounds but for the patience implicit in the successful completion of this dictionary. (February 2008 Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies)

Reading through Miksic's impressive work has renewed my belief, and will certainly inspire others, that area studies is not dead and that the ancient has much to teach us. The present book will go a considerable way toward providing a fuller picture and better balance in our understanding of ethno-linguistic studies in India during the early colonial periods. Miksic's expertise as an archaeologist and art historian is evident throughout. This is an extremely useful, clear and concise reference work. John Miksic has performed a great service for the field, and one hopes it will inspire future students to take up the study of ancient Southeast Asia. (Journal of the American Oriental Society)

This reference for students, researchers, and interested general readers provides a wealth of information on the cultures, nations, and people that inhabited Southeast Asia from the 1st through the 15th centuries. Hundreds of cross- referenced, alphabetically arranged entries describe key places, kingdoms, dynasties, temples, capitals, deities, rulers, poets, and more. Supplemental materials include b&w maps and a chronology, bibliography, and glossary. Miksic (National U. of Singapore) is an archaeologist, historian, and art historian...
