The Indonesian Heritage Series is a 15-volume illustrated encyclopedia for general and student readers. Written by leading Indonesian and international experts, it covers a wealth of natural sciences, geography, history and art themes. It is the first comprehensive encyclopedia to embrace the rich natural and cultural heritage of the entire Indonesian Archipelago from Sumatra to Irian Jaya. One of the world’s fastest-changing and most populous nations, Indonesia is home to a rich and resilient civilisation, in a natural setting of astonishing diversity. Each volume, taking a separate subject, presents information in an attractive and accessible way. Great emphasis is placed on visual materials ranging from old prints and documents to striking photographs and newly commissioned paintings and drawings, maps and diagrams. Each is illustrated in full colour, and includes a general introduction, glossary, bibliography and index.
