About This Book

Early Mapping of Southeast Asia documents the idea of Southeast Asia as a geographical and cosmological construct, from the earliest of times up until the dawn of the modern era. Using maps, itineraries, sailing instructions, travellers' tales, religious texts and other contemporary sources, it examines the representation of Southeast Asia, both from the historical perspective of Western explorers and cartography, and also through the eyes of Asian neighbours. First published in 1999, this magnificently illustrated book has now been in reissued in 2008.
