The Graves of Tarim:
Genealogy and Mobility across the Indian Ocean
 -
 Engseng Ho

Before and while European powers were intruding upon Asia to colonise large parts of the continent, other outsiders, mainly Hadrami Yemeni descendants of the prophet Muhammad, were less obtrusively making new homes from the Indian sub continent to the Malay Archipelago. In this ground breaking work Ho with the help of biographies, family histories, pilgrimage manuals and other documents traces how this community not only absorbed themselves into their new host communities, but also maintained contact with their original homeland to spark cultural transformations that remained while European influence waned. New Paperback. First Edition. 379 pages with 24 black and white plates, 4 maps, a bibliography and an index.
