The dynamics of the maritime world has held the fascination of researchers and scholars of history for long. Viewing the waterscapes as conduits of much economic and cultural sharing between peoples and lands, the focus of Networks in the First Global Age: 1400-1800 is on the oceans and seasâ??the Indian, the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans and the Mediterranean Seaâ??and economic, military and cultural transmissions within and across them.The book shows how conventional arguments in history writing about the rise of theWest, the hegemon of the State and the might of overseas colonial empire...

Seller ID: 701465

ISBN: 9789384092009

Condition: New


Living with Water: Peoples, Lives and Livelihoods in Asia and Beyond examines the relation between water and human history through the prism of archaeology, ethnography, history, maritime anthropology, literature, sociology and musicology. Moving away from traditional themes of maritime history such as oceanic trade, migration, slavery, piracy, shipping and port-to-port linkages-and from the generic themes of maritime contacts and market exchanges, of cultural contacts and technology transfers, and of collaboration versus military conflict-the volume focusses instead on human-water interaction...

Beyond National Frames: South Asian Pasts and the World advocates re-orienting our vision that has so far seen South Asia as a tightly circumscribed space. Envisioning a mobile South Asia flowing beyond its geographical confines, this volume of essays showcases a history transcending present borders of both land and sea resulting in a truly connected transnational history of Asia and the Indian Ocean world. Recommending a shift from the conventional region or nation-centred histories to spaces seen as borderless, the essays in this book re-evaluate known sources, open up fresh ones, raise ...

Publisher: New Delhi, Primus Books: 2012

Seller ID: 701470

ISBN: 9789380607405

Condition: New


Oceans Connect: Reflections on Water Worlds across Time and Space explores how seas and oceans connect geographically and through networks of trade, cooperation, beliefs, scientific knowledge and even rumour. More importantly, it makes a case for the decolonization of regional history by way of defining it through ocean spaces rather than land borders and therefore brings into focus the distinction between marine and maritime worlds. Looking at the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans, as also the Mediterranean Sea through the ages, the book argues for a re-conceptualization of maritime his... View more info

Pelagic Passageways : The Northern Bay of Bengal Before Colonialism

By: Rila Mukherjee

Price: $63.25

Publisher: New Delhi, Primus Books: 2011

Seller ID: 701641

ISBN: 9789380607207

Condition: New


Due to the frontierization of nation-states, maritime historians have tended to ignore the northern Bay of Bengal. Yet, this marginal region, now dispersed over the four nation-states of India, China, Myanmar and Bangladesh, was not marginal in the past. Until recently, however, historians have concentrated largely on the 'big four': the Gujarat, Malabar, Coromandel and western Bengal coasts. Extreme eastern South Asia — Bengal and the lands to its north-east fanning into Burma and China, or modern India's north-east and beyond — is the focus of Pelagic Passageways. This regional unit,...

Rethinking Connectivity: Region, Place and Space in Asia

Price: $58.89

Condition: New


The history of a place, no matter how small, cannot be understood without appreciating the connections — visible or invisible; random or methodical; haphazard or systematic — it forges with other places across time and space. Once these connections become consistent and durable, they transform into connectivities, and Rethinking Connectivity: Region, Place and Space in Asia urges us to discern not just connections but also connectivities. Starting with cases of highly visible and structured/networked connectivities from an overland route spanning Central Asia and a coastal polity on the fa... View more info
