 DESCRIPTION
spacer
Divided conveniently into three major regions--South Asia, South-East Asia and Far East Asia--the eight volumes present a panoramic view of the glory and splendour of the millennia-old civilisations of Asia in a lucid countrywide series of profiles that extend over origins, settlements, daily life, religious influences, customs and practices, myth and magic, ritual and worship, folk expressions and creative manifestations, and social mores. The series represents a major effort to bring together in compact yet essential detail the historical forces, the religious factors, and the cultural influences that have sought to shape and mould the timeless cultures of this great continent--which now seeks to come to terms with the modern world. Much more than document--much more than a cultural profile. In eight exquisitely designed volumes, each volume a tribute to Asia.
