This interactive, electronic work is the follow‐up to the author’s landmark Historical Atlas of Indonesia that so many have been looking for in the past decade. The Digital Atlas builds on its predecessor by adding many more maps and extra text, packaging these for teaching and individual use, and delivering them on DVD and online together with much additional material. Based on traditional research and scholarship, its nearly five hundred specially drawn full‐color maps are augmented with a detailed companion text. The result is an astounding, pioneering work that brings fresh life to the fascinating and tangled history of Indonesia’s immense archipelago.
