Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Classic Ships of Islam contains the table of contents, a list of abbreviations, acknowledgements, a preface, transliteration system and the note. The book charts the development of Islamic ships and boats in the Western Indian Ocean from the seventh to the early sixteenth century with reference to earlier periods. It utilizes mainly Classical and Medieval Arabic sources with iconographical evidence and archaeological finds. Maritime activities in the region resulted in a cross fertilization, not only of goods but also of ideas and culture which gave an underlying cohesion to the Arabian, Persian and Indian maritime peoples.

Keywords: Arabian people; classical Arabic sources; Indian people; Islamic ships; medieval Arabic sources; Persian people
