Item description for A Chain of Kings: The Makassarese Chronicles of Gowa and Talloq (Biblotheca Indonesica) by William Cummings...

The chronicles of Gowa and Talloq are the most important historical sources for the study of precolonial Makassar. They have provided the basic framework and much of the information that we possess about the origins, growth, and expansion of Gowa during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. During this period Gowa and its close ally Talloq became the most powerful force in the eastern Indonesian archipelago, and historians have relied heavily on these chronicles to chart the developments of this period. Available for the first time in English translation, these two texts will offer historians an invaluable foundation on which to base interpretations of this crucial place and time in Indonesian history.

This volume will be a useful addition to the libraries of scholars of premodern Southeast Asia, including historians, linguists, anthropologists, and others.
