SarDesai's Southeast Asia provides what most books on the region's history do not-a concise, comprehensive, and up-to-date study of the major historical developments in Southeast Asia from ancient times to 2008. It is also different in that it traces the history of all eleven Southeast Asian nations, conveys the region's complexity and diversity, and includes chronological charts. SarDesai is professor emeritus of history and the former chair of South and Southeast Asian Studies at UCLA. He was also Chair of the Department of History, UCLA, and Director of the University of California's Education Abroad Program in New Delhi.

D. SarDesai August 1996. Older books on Southeast Asia designated it variously but mostly in reference to either of the two large neighboring countries. Thus, many British, French, and Indian scholars called it Farther India, Greater India, L'Inde Exterieure, and the Hinduized or Indianized States.

However, while I disagreed with many of his arguments, I found SarDesai's approach quite refreshing. On the whole, this introduction to Southeast Asia is indespensible to anyone with no prior knowlege of the region.

I found it fascinating to learn about all of these countries and walked away with a lot more knowledge of this region. However, while I disagreed with many of his arguments, I found SarDesai's approach quite refreshing.

SarDesai’s Southeast Asia: Past and Present is an ambitious and updated study that gives the reader a sweeping and informative view of the history of the. region. The book is organized much like a textbook, despite the near absence of images and figures (while there are ample maps in the first three parts, the fourth part has no maps and only one table) offers readers little respite from voluminous amounts of information. While newer sources may be found in the bibliography, there are many sources going back to the 1950s and before.
