Traditional Slavery in Southeast Asia and Beyond is a work about the development of slavery from prehistoric times in general and those cultures that practiced slavery in Southeast Asia and neighboring regions until quite recently, or even today.

Early slavery in Far Eastern Asia started in ancient China during the Xia dynasty in about 2100 BC. In Southeast Asia, slavery is reported since the establishment of the early Indianized states in the first centuries AD and developed over the centuries to new heights, even to the depopulation of an entire nation—the Kingdom of Laos—at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century.
