About the Book :
The volumes of the Project Of The History OF Science,Philosophy And Culture in Indian Civilization aim at discovering the main aspects of India's heritage and present them in an itterrelated way. These volumes, in spite of their unitary look, recognize the difference between the areas of material civilization and those of ideational culture. The Volume 'India's Interaction with Southeast Asia' edited by Professor G.C. Pande provides a much needed synthesis of new research on ancient Indian contact with Southeast Asia. This volume situates Indo-Southeast Asian interchange within a global civilizational perspective, in which the old notion of the Indic 'motherland' sustainaing 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.
