In this volume, Andre Wink analyzes the beginning of the process of momentous and long term change that came with the Islamization of the regions that the Arabs called 'al Hind' India and large parts of its Indianized hinterland. In the 7th to 11th centuries, the expansion of Islam had a largely commercial impact on al Hind. In the peripheral states of the Indian subcontinent, fluid resources, intensive raiding and trading activity, as well as social and political fluidity and openness produced a dynamic impetus that was absent in the densely settled agricultural heartland. Shifts of power occurred, in combination with massive transfers of wealth across multiple centres along the periphery of al Hind. These multiple centres mediated between the world of mobile wealth on the Islamic Sino Tibetan frontier (which extended into Southeast Asia) and the world of sedentary agriculture, epitomized by brahmanical temple Hinduism in and around Kanauj in the heartland. The growth and development of a world economy in and around the Indian Ocean with India at its centre and the Middle East and China as its two dynamic poles was effected by continued economic, social and cultural integration into ever wider and more complex patterns under the aegis of Islam.
