About the Book

Scholars are increasingly recognising the centrality of the Indian Ocean in the study of Muslim cultures. This volume, edited by AKU-ISMC’s Professors Stéphane Pradines and Farouk Topan, explores the expanding and changing roles of these Muslim communities across the Indian Ocean world, from the seventh century to the medieval period to the present day. It explores the networks and movements of peoples, ideas and ideologies, as well as art, culture, religion and heritage.
