Abia: South and Southeast Asian Art and Archaeology Index: Vol 2

Volume two, contains about 1500 records selected from the annotated bibliographic database on South and Southeast Asian art and archaeology (formerly Annual Bibliography of Indian Archaeology). They were compiled by an international team of specialists brought together in a project of The International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS) in Leiden and feature all forms of scholarly publications, ranging from survey works to small but important articles in monographs and journals, published world-wide between 1997 and 2001. Subjects include pre- and protohistory, historical archaeology, ancient art history, modern art history, material culture, epigraphy and palaeography, numismatics and sigillography (seals). Covered are South Asia and its culturally related regions (Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Tibet) and Southeast Asia (including related regions in South China and the Pacific). The detailed bibliographic descriptions (which faithfully reproduce the original diacritics), controlled keywords and many elucidating annotations make this reference work into a useful guide to recent scholarly work on the prehistory and arts of South/Southeast Asia.
