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, and available both digitally and online, its nearly 500 specially drawn full-colour maps are augmented with a detailed companion text.
