The Indian Ocean has played an important role in the history of humanity. In a first-of-its-kind effort, bestselling author Sanjeev Sanyal tells the story of this region stretching across East Africa, the Middle East and SouthEast Asia to Australia. He covers topics such as human migration out of Africa, great cities during different periods in history like Angkor and Vijayanagar, medieval Arab empires and Chinese treasure fleets, European colonial powers fighting for control over this area against each other, and more recent events including the COVID-19 pandemic. Sanjeev is a historian who specializes in exploring remote archaeological sites, uncovering ancient inscriptions, and researching maritime trading networks. He uses this information to challenge well-established historical claims. This eclectic mix of history includes stories about adventurers such as merchants and explorers, along with revolutionary figures such as warrior princesses. His fascinating narrative is full of colourful characters and exciting twists and turns.
