This Volume Situates Indo-Southeast Asian Interchange Within A Global Civilizational Perspective, In Which The Old Notion Of The Indic 'Motherland' Sustaining The Southeast Asian Civilization Is Discarded In Favour Of A 'Reciprocal' Model That Explores The Uniqueness Of The Lands On Both Sides Of The Bay Of Bengal. The Volume Gives Equitable Academic Space To Both Dimensions Of Indo-Southeast Asian Contacts: The Indic Influences That Shaped Southeast Asian Cultures As Well As The Native Genius Of Southeast Asians That Refined Indian Art And Architecture Into The Wonders Of Angkor Vat And Borobudur. The Contributions To The Volume Come From Art Historians, Archaeologists, Linguists, Historians And Philosophers Well Known In Their Field. The Volume Is Relevant For The Specialist As Well As The Layman.
