The historical study of women and gender in Southeast Asia has received relatively little attention, despite the fact that "female autonomy" is often cited as a distinguishing feature of the region. This pioneering collection brings together a number of international scholars distinguished by their knowledge of relevant primary sources and their willingness to ask new questions and apply new methodologies. Often challenging established generalizations, the essays highlight the changes and continuities in gender roles. Offering both a specialist and comparative perspective, the book will appeal to students as well as more senior scholars working on Southeast Asia, and will provide a useful supplement for cross-cultural courses on women and gender constructions.
