"This book fills a gap in the historiography of colonial Indonesia. Mobini-Kesheh's study delivers a fascinating picture of an immigrant community in colonial Indonesia and opens up valuable insights into one of the most important non-European trading communities and its socio-political world."* ASIEN *
"This thoughtful, richly informed study is the fruit of wide reading and painstaking research. It is written with assurance and refreshing lucidity, and is a valuable addition to existing studies on the Hadrami diaspora."* Asian Affairs *
