Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The pagodas of Burma, the temples of Angkor, the great Buddhist monument of Borobudur--these achievements of powerful courts and rulers are part of a broad artistic tradition including textiles, applied arts, vernacular architecture, and village crafts. Covering Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Burma, and the Philippines, Fiona Kerlogue examines the roots and development of the arts of this distinctive region from prehistory to the present day. Broadly chronological, the book traces the different religions that have shaped the region's historic cultures--Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Christianity--finishing with an exploration of the arts of the post-colonial period. With nearly 200 illustrations, over 100 in color, a glossary of names and places, and suggestions for further reading, the book is a comprehensive introduction to the arts and culture of Southeast Asia. It will appeal to students, travelers, expatriates, and anyone with an interest in the region.
