"By drawing together much material which has until now been poorly understood, The Open Door makes sense of the Wajorese diaspora in western Indonesia and Malaysia. Its account of Wajorese identity and statecraft, built on indigenous Bugis sources and the work of contemporary anthropologists, provides completely new insights."
--Campbell Macknight, Australian National University
"The Open Door is an original contribution to the literature on Southeast Asian history. Wellen has the linguistic capacities to work in this difficult field. She uses both published and archival Dutch sources as well as the main extant published Bugis sources from and about Wajoq. I know of no significant sources that she has overlooked."
--William S. Cummings, University of South Florida
