Reviews

Wat het boek toch zeer de moeite waard maakt, is dat jonge Aziatische historici zich mengen in wat nieuwe wetenschappelijke en theoretische discussies zijn. Deze historici zijn sterk gericht op archiefonderzoek en beheersen vaak meerdere Europese en Aziatische talen. Veel informatie wordt geput uit de archieven van het VOC , maar vaak in combinatie met Aziatische bronnen. De traditionele aandacht voor de geschiedenis van de Europese expansie verschuift met hun onderwerpskeuzes ook naar de geschiedenis van Azie zelf. - Chris Nierstrasz, in Tijdschrift voor Zeegeschiedenis, No. 1 Jr. 35, 2016
