Locating Southeast Asia
Geographies of Knowledge and Politics of Space
Edited by Paul H. Kratoska, Remco Raben, and Henk Schulte Nordholt
Southeast Asia summons images of tropical forests and mountains, islands and seas, and a multitude of languages, cultures, and religions.

Academics have defined Southeast Asia over the years as what is left over after subtracting Australia, the South Pacific islands, China and India.
