India and South-East Asia have a long history of intensive contacts via the Bay of Bengal. While commerce was probably the most dominant province of such interaction, it also embraced politics, culture and religion. This collection of essays seeks to explore some of these links in the early modern period by looking at the Bay of Bengal region as a unity rather than simply as an agglomeration of distinct political entities. In the domain of commerce, an important theme explored in the volume is the nature and the extent of the maritime trade carried on between the two regions mainly by the Indian merchants, both in the period prior to the arrival of the Europeans in the Indian Ocean at the end of the fifteenth century, as well as in the period between the sixteenth and the eighteenth centuries. The volume also contains contributions dealing with the trade carried on by the Europeans in the Bay of Bengal during these centuries. Contributions in the field of culture and religion include a study tracing the Indian influence in the matter of patterns and designs on the specific varieties of textiles used by different sections of the Thai society and another analysing the strong links between the Singhalese Sangha and the Arakanese and Burmese Theravadin communities. This collection of essays will be of abiding interest to the historians of both India and South-East Asia as well as to the historians of the Indian Ocean. Om Prakash was Professor of Economic History at the Delhi School of Economics, University of Delhi. His publications include European Commercial Enterprise in Pre-colonial India (1998); European Commercial Expansion in Early Modern Asia (1997); Precious Metals and Commerce, The Dutch East India Company in the Indian Ocean Trade (1994); The Dutch East India Company and the Economy of Bengal 1630-1720 (1985) and The Dutch Factories in India 1617-1623 (1984). The late Denys Lombard was Director of the Ecole Francaise d’Extreme-Orient, Paris. His publications include (with R. Ptak), ed., Asia Maritime: Images et réalités/Bild und Wirklichkeit, 1200-1800 (1994); Le carrefour javanais, Essai d’histoire globale (1990); (with Jean Aubin), ed., Marchands et Hommes d’affaires asiatiques dans l’Océan Indien et la Mer de Chine 13e-20e siécles (1988); (with Claudine Salmon), Les Chinois de Jakarta, temples et vie collective/The Chinese of Jakarta, Temples and Communal Life (1977); Le Sultanat d’Atjeh au temps d’lskandar Muda (1607-1636) (1967); La Chine impériale (1967).
