The Malay Peninsula: Crossroads Of The Maritime Silk-Road (100 Bc-1300 Ad) (Handbook Of Oriental Studies/Handbuch Der Orientalistik) (Handbook Of Oriental Studies. Section 3 Southeast Asia)

This book attempts to evaluate the role of the Malay Peninsula as a crossroads in the great wave of commercial relationships along the maritime Silk Road from the first centuries of the Christian era to the 14th century. Through these exchanges, representatives of all the civilizations of Asia entered into contact along its shores. They left in this place a part of themselves, as can be seen in the great stylistic diversity of the religious and commercial artefacts which have been found in the area.These artefacts have been analysed and categorized afresh in the light of more precise information provided in Chinese texts concerning the nature of the political entities developing at the time: often dynamic city states or more modest chiefdoms.Review'With this description [the author] thus recovers a long los period of South East Asian history, informing the general reader, present-day economists and politicians of this amazing and early expansion of Indian cultural and religious traditions.'David Snellgrove.'...up-to-date, comprehensive and stock-taking contributions...Jacq-Hergoulac'h has tackled the complex problem with great prudence and thoroughness. He has produced a handbook in the best sense which will doubtless serve Southeast Asianists and trade historians alike as a starting point and reference guide in years to come...A wide range of pieces from collections in both Thailand and America makes it certain that the handbook will gain the status of a first-hand reference volume.Tilman Frasch,International Quarterly for Asian Studies, 2005.'...the book is immensely informative, and very well prepared. The numerous plans and maps, and photos of objects, greatly assist the reader in all the sections in which local finds and architecture are described.'Stuart Munro-Hay,Journal of the Siam Society, 2003.About the AuthorMichel Jacq-Hergoualc'h, Ph.D. in the History of Art and Archaeology, Sorbonne University, is Director of Research, CNRS in Paris.
