Saim Kayadibi (ed.), Ottoman Connections to the Malay World: Islam, Law and Society
This book is a carefully researched work that may serve as an important resource for the study of Ottoman and other Muslim connections and networks to the Malay Archipelago. The spread of Islam in the region through trade is well documented here. The authors of the seven articles contained in this volume have used original sources - many of them very little known or used in contemporary scholarship. The authors are strongly supported by their sources to contribute to a re-writing of the history of this region.
