India in Africa, Africa in India traces the longstanding interaction between these two regions, showing that the Indian Ocean world provides many examples of cultural flows that belie our understanding of globalization as a recent phenomenon. This region has had, and continues to have, an internal integrity that touches the lives of its citizens in their commerce, their cultural exchanges, and their concepts of each other and of themselves in the world. These connections have deep historical roots, and their dynamics are not attributable solely to the effects of European colonialism, modernity, or contemporary globalization-although these forces have left their mark. The contributors to this interdisciplinary volume come from the fields of history, literature, dance, sociology, gender studies, and religion, making this collection unique in its recreation of an entire world too seldom considered as such.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"... the essays in this volume on Indian Ocean slavery and the African settlements in India are a useful lens into the larger debates that surround this rapidly growing arena of scholarly study." -Gaurav Desai, Tulane University, RESEARCH IN AFRICAN LITERATURES, Vol. 40.3 August 2009


"[A]dds to the growing literature on the Indian Ocean world... and cultural interpretations and representations of India and Africa in art, film, music, religion, and other intellectual and sociocultural activities. The text serves as a great introduction or 'crash course' because aspects of the volume serve as historiography of fiction and non-fiction literature about the Indian Ocean and its diasporas all over the globe." -Catherine Cymone Fourshey, Susquehanna University, International Jrnl of African Historical Studies, Vol. 44.2 2009
