China and Southeast Asia : Historical Interactions, Hardback Book

China and Southeast Asia : Historical Interactions Hardback

Edited by Geoff Wade, James K. (University of Hong Kong) Chin

Part of the Routledge Studies in the Modern History of Asia series


Spanning over a millennium of history, this book seeks to describe and define the evolution of the China-Southeast Asia nexus and the interactions which have shaped their shared pasts.

Examining the relationships which have proven integral to connecting Northeast and Southeast Asia with other parts of the world, the contributors of the volume provide a wide-ranging historical context to changing relations in the region today - perhaps one of the most intense re-orderings occurring anywhere in the world.

From maritime trading relations and political interactions to overland Chinese expansion and commerce in Southeast Asia, this book reveals rarely explored connections across the China-Southeast Asia interface.

In so doing, it transcends existing area studies boundaries to present an invaluable new perspective to the field. A major contribution to the study of Asian economic and cultural interactions, this book will appeal to students and scholars of Chinese history, as well as those engaged with Southeast Asia.
