    Description

    Much of human history has played itself out along the rim of the Indian Ocean. In a firstof- its-kind attempt, bestselling author Sanjeev Sanyal tells the history of this significant region, which stretches across East Africa, the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent to South East Asia and Australia. He narrates a fascinating tale about the earliest human migrations out of Africa and the great cities of Angkor and Vijayanagar; medieval Arab empires and Chinese treasure fleets; the rivalries of European colonial powers and a new dawn. In his inimitable style, he draws upon existing and new evidence to challenge well-established claims about famous historical characters and the flow of history. Adventurers, merchants, explorers, monks, swashbuckling pirates, revolutionaries and warrior princesses populate this colourful and multifaceted narrative. The Ocean of Churn takes the reader on an amazing journey through medieval geopolitics and eyewitness accounts of long-lost cities to the latest genetic discoveries about human origins, bringing alive a region that has defined civilization from the very beginning.

    Awesome

    Very fascinating read. Makes you realize how isolationist have we become in our world view and consequently, in our approach to the world. At the same time, the Chinese are in a voyage to relive the legend of Xheng Ze. Need to focus more on the Indian Ocean and the possibilities and what it could achieve is a lesson this history well reflects. Great work by Sanyal Sir.

    Marvelous exposition of the interconnectedness of history!

    If history is to be written to make it accessible to the lay reader, the student, and make it interesting, Sanjeev Sanyal is one author I would pick. “The Ocean of Churn” is Sanjeev Sanyal’s continuing and gentle attempt to shake Indians from their stupor and look at history afresh. It is breathtaking, when one surveys how history, geography, and the history of Arthashastra (economics) in India have been taught – each divorced from the other. This book is a much-needed corrective.
