In this volume of 14 separately referenced essays historians from the Vrije Universiteit (VU University), Amsterdam mark the retirement of Prof. Heather Sutherland. They deal with interlinkages of trade flows, cities and kinship in the history of Asia and the Indonesian archipelago. Among the subjects explored are the slave trade in early modern Southeast Asia; cowries as currency 600 BCE - 900 CE; the asianisation of indigo; home-grown entertainment in early 20th century Batavia; family histriography in Colonial Indonesia; and traditional Chinese lineages in transnational spaces.
