The Bookshelf Spotlight was developed to direct interested readers to the wide variety of Southeast Asia focused publications released each year. Built thematically and also offering individual country references, the Bookshelf Spotlight may be of interest to collection specialists, instructors, researchers, and the general reader interested in Southeast Asia. We welcome new theme and title suggestions to help us grow this resource over time — please email us at with suggestions.
