Contrary to most histories of Southeast Asia, which focus on the influence of Europe on the area, the author takes a step back in history to uncover the region's deeper cultural roots. He maps out the history from the Chinese conquest of Annam in the third century, followed by the spread of Indian influence in the archipelago through to the European zenith in the 19th century.
