Item description for Indian Ocean Migrants and State Formation in Hadhramaut: Reforming the Homeland (Social, Economic and Political Studies of the Middle East and Asia) by Ulrike Freitag, Larry Sloman, Mike Mulvihill, Kidder Smith, Ferran Mestanza, Donald K. Carter & Jon Buller...

Ulrike Freitag here discusses the modern history of Hadhramaut in a novel way. Linked to the Indian Ocean through a long history of migration, she traces the ways in which members of the diaspora and travellers interacted with the homeland through their remittances, political initiatives and the introduction of new ideas and institutions. The book is based on a wide range of Hadhrami and British sources, as well as on fieldwork in Yemen and Indonesia. Exemplary life histories of merchants and scholars illustrate the wide range of concerns for the establishment of stable politics in a tribal society. This is linked to the careful analysis of the impact of imperial rule both in the lands of the diaspora and in Hadhramaut in chapters focusing on state and institution formation. Developments in Hadhramaut are regarded as a prism for the development of modernity in the wider Muslim and Indian Ocean worlds which was adapted to local conditions and needs.
