African Elites in India: Habshi Amarat (2006)

This book focuses on elites of sub-Saharan African-Indian descent who held positions like merchants, nobles, and political rulers from the15th and 20th centuries. Representation of Habshis and Sidis (Indians of East African origin) in art history highlights the historical relevance of Afro-Asian intersectionality and adds depth to growing research about the East African slave trade.
