This collection of essays in honour of Dr Ian Glover, who for over fifty years has been one of Southeast Asia's most pioneering and leading archaeologists, offers a complete and up-to-date account of the main issues and debates on the region's archaeology spanning the late Pleistocene to the early historic period. Aimed at both the specialist and general reader alike, this volume discusses issues ranging from food subsistence management, technology transfer and long-distance exchange, to social complexity and political and ethical debates that are today an important aspect of Southeast Asian studies. The contributors tackle topics such as hunter-gatherers and early agriculture in East Timor, burial traditions in Thailand and Sarawak, the development of early states in Vietnam and Sulawesi, craft production and exchange stretching from India to the South China Sea, issues of post-colonialism in Laos and the creation of world heritage sites throughout the region.
