Abstract

Asia is the largest and the most populous of the continents. Its area exceeds that of North and South America combined. Its population numbers 1.7 billion—well over half of the planet's 3.1 billion inhabitants. Until recent times Asia was also the seat of three of the earth's most influential civilizations: one based in China, a second in India, and a third in Turkey.
