MEDIA REVIEWS
"Southeast Asia is the encyclopedia that will be used for exploring and understanding this geopolitical region for many years . . . Highly recommended for public, academic, and some high school libraries for the broad coverage and generally easy-to-understand articles." - Booklist
"Finally, an encyclopedia devoted to the history of a geographic region that has received little attention in reference literature . . . This user-friendly work is more accessible to the broader audience. Highly recommended for high school, public, and academic libraries." - Library Journal
"The editor has accomplished his goal of producing an accessible volume covering an area that is little understood in the West." - American Reference Books Annual
"The work affords a broad, authoritative resource for those wanting more on the region than general encyclopedias provide, while guiding sophisticated users to significant literature. Summing Up: Highly recommended. General and academic readers." - Choice
"The editor . . . has accomplished a monumental task in pulling together a work conveying such a disparate region. . . . Since this is the most current and comprehenisve reference work available on this important region, it is an important acquisition for academic libraries supporting courses and research on Southeast Asia." - MultiCultural Review
