Arts of Southeast Asia looks at the arts of this fascinating region in the context of the historical and cultural phenomena shared by these countries and of their distinct responses to common internal and external influences.The continuities and discontinuities that characterize Southeast Asia are reflected in the wide array of exquisite textiles, jewellery, metalwork, ceramics, wood-carving and leatherwork that make up the main body of Southeast Asian arts are illustrated in this book.

The authors explore the strength of indigenous art forms and animist beliefs and the long-term influences of India, China, Europe and the Arab world, and of Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity and Islam on Southeast Asian cultural forms.
