In this landmark publication, notable archaeologist and scholar John N. Miksic reconstructs a vivid image of the development of Southeast Asia’s unique ceramics. He summarises the research on this subject over the last 40 years, beginning with the founding of the Southeast Asian Ceramic Society (SEACS) in Singapore in 1969. The result is a comprehensive and insightful overview of the technology, aesthetics and organisation, both economic and political, of ceramics from what seem to be diverse territories in pre-colonial Southeast Asia. This book is essential reading, not only for those with an interest in the economic history of the region but for all who seek a better understanding of the brilliant but underestimated material culture of our great forefathers.
