    The Bedford Series in History and Culture is a growing collection of brief topical histories with supporting documents. This volume, but Omar Ali, is a welcome addition, and is an intentional voice in the ongoing discussions of premodern forms of globalization. In this instance, the focus is the Muslim world as it grew up and developed within the context of the Indian Ocean. While there are multiple ways that the volumes in this growing Bedford series may be read, my preferred method is to focus The Bedford Series in History and Culture is a growing collection of brief topical histories with supporting documents. This volume, but Omar Ali, is a welcome addition, and is an intentional voice in the ongoing discussions of premodern forms of globalization. In this instance, the focus is the Muslim world as it grew up and developed within the context of the Indian Ocean. While there are multiple ways that the volumes in this growing Bedford series may be read, my preferred method is to focus upon the introduction and then consult each of the sources as they are addressed by the author. However, Ali has also arranged the documents in thematic groups for those readers who prefer the access them in that way. As Ali describes the development of Islam within the Indian Ocean world, the emphasis must be upon the word "development." As Islam was adopted by various groups within an already diverse geographic region, Muslim communities adapted it to their own particular situations. Systems rarely can be imposed upon existing populations without some adaptation, and Ali amply illustrates this dynamic at work, and frequently points out the contributions made by Sufis in facilitating the adoption of Islam within various new locales. The author also does not shy away from illustrating the internal debates which can be detected over the relationship between Islam and other religious communities within many of the significant public and private documents. This book should be included among the basic required reading for those individuals who seek a better understanding of the development and spread of Islam. Historians interested in the dynamics of cultural diffusion and the Dehli Sultanate, or those interested in the overall influence of Islam on India as well as its interactions with Hinduism, will find this volume particularly helpful.
