About the book

The study of intellectual exchange between South and Southeast Asian has lain almost dormant for the past 50 years. In the 1960s, the concept of "Indianisation" which had long dominated the historiography of Southeast Asia was intellectually exhausted and scholars no longer found the assumptions underlying it credible. The essays in this volume summarize a wealth of newely-acquired archaeological data which enables scholars to formulate clearer insights into centuries of interaction between the two regions. The new studies emphasise the localization of South Asian cultural elements in Southeast Asia, what one might term the "Southeast Asianisation" of artistic, architectural, linguistic, and religious attributes as they crossed the Bay of Bengal and reached Southeast Asian shores. This new perspective should enable the South-Southeast Asia nexus to take its proper place among the major examples of intensive long-term cultural exchange in world history.
