Welcome

Welcome to the Digital Atlas of Indonesian History by Robert Cribb.

This work is based on the author’s landmark Historical Atlas of Indonesia (published in 2000) but has been expanded and updated with over 150 new maps, a new chapter, and other revisions and corrections. The result is a wide-ranging reference work for Indonesian history, consisting of a concise history of the archipelago in six chapters and a collection of nearly 500 maps saved in different formats suitable for use in classroom teaching (e.g. using Powerpoint) and for royalty-free reproduction by scholars in their own publications. In addition, the atlas offers reproductions of some historical maps, links to a wide range of other archival material and a printed user guide.

We hope that you find the Digital Atlas a powerful explanation of Indonesian political, social and economic history and a fascinating companion to your own studies of the archipelago.
