The southern rim of Asia, stretching from Tibet through the Indian subcontinent to Burma, Thailand, the South China Sea, and the Indonesian archipelago, is the core of Asian civilisation and the most important axis of movement and exchange in human history. Hinduism and Buddhism were both born and spread there, Islam achieved its greatest outreach there, and the lure of its rich commerce led the colonial expansion of Europe to begin there. Today South and Southeast Asia is a dynamic, beautiful, and promising region, home to almost a third of the world's population, almost two thirds of its Muslim population, and the majority of its rapidly growing, successful developing economies. Endlessly diverse in languages and cultures, the countries of South and Southeast Asia are united by increasingly strong democratic values, and by a growing orientation toward global markets.
