Overview

Recognising the fundamental role both of shipping communities and the technologies crafted and shared by them, this book explores the types of ships, methods of navigation and modes of water-borne trade in the Indian Ocean region and the way they affected the development of distinctive settlements against a changing but strong sense of regional consciousness and identity. While maritime conflicts were not especially pronounced before European involvement in trade, later periods were characterised by war, plunder and colonialism, so altering considerably the role of ships and technology.

I found this as an interesting book and an above-average compilation of conference proceedings that, at times, can be variable in quality and usefulness. The editors should be congratulated.. <br>- International Journal of Maritime, Jeremy Green <br>
