The worldwide impact of Peter’s work is evident in more than 300 academic publications since 1967, translations and updated revised editions of his major books, more than 50 invitations as a key speaker in international conferences, and as supervisor to more than 30 graduate students who have filled professional positions in Australia, USA, Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Laos, Thailand, Japan, Hong Kong, China and Taiwan (see list
