Editorial Reviews

Review

“Covering an impressive geographical area and chronological span, from the Western Mediterranean to India, from the 1530s to the 1720s, Subrahmanyam draws on a vast range of sources—letters, contracts, diplomatic records, testaments, personal chronicles—to tell the stories (always in the plural) of identities caught between cultures. . . . This is an extraordinarily elegant study of individuals who lived at the intersection of cultures, religions, and political systems, and of the creative strategies they deployed, more or less successfully, to negotiate their presence therein.”—American Historical Review

Review

“Through case-studies of three quite remarkable ‘aliens’ and ‘border-crossers’ Sanjay Subrahmanyam has given us a startling new vision into the intricacies and the day to day realities of the always unsteady, always conflictual nature of cultural ‘encounters’ across and within the European and Muslim empires of the early-modern world. With his wry humor, keen eye for detail, and gift for startling juxtaposition, no one can match him.” (Anthony Pagden, author of Worlds at War: The 2500 Year Struggle between East and West)

“Integrating biography, microhistory, and world history in the study of cultural border crossers, Subrahmanyam’s book will probably initiate a whole new generation of studies in the field of cultural encounters in which individual lives figure prominently. Few scholars in the world can match his mastery of the political and economic history of the Early Modern empires of Asia and Europe, or the ease with which he crosses historiographical traditions to bring their history together in this lucid and innovative study.” (Stuart B. Schwartz, Yale University)
