    In this classic work George Hourani deals with the history of the sea trade of the Arabs in the Indian Ocean from its obscure origins many centuries before Christ to the time of its full extension to China and East Africa in the ninth and tenth centuries. The book comprises a brief but masterly historical account that has never been superseded. The wildlife of East Africa is quite extraordinary, and a cruise can be easily combined with a Kenyan or Tanzanian safari. The Indian Ocean, meanwhile, tempts travellers with the promise of idyllic islands set amongst calm turquoise waters, including Mauritius, Madagascar, the Maldives and the Seychelles.

      See, for example, Clare Anderson, Subaltern Lives: Biographies of Colonialism in the Indian Ocean World, – (Cambridge, ); Edward Alpers, East Africa and the Indian Ocean (Princeton, NJ, ); Gwyn Campbell The Structure of Slavery in Indian Ocean Africa . The Indian Ocean is known as Ratnakara in the ancient Sanskrit literature. Ratnakara means “the maker (creator) of gems” We at the National Museum of African Art wish to tell an exceptional story. It is a story that begins when trade flourished in and around the Indian Ocean, sweeping up the East African coast and across the Arabian Peninsula.

      The Indian Ocean Trade Instructions: Your group is a trading company in the year The merchants working for the company are from East Africa and Asia. The object of the simulation is to make as much profit as you can by traveling back and forth across the Indian Ocean and conducting trade between Asian and African kingdoms.   The PROFIT Regional Investment Conference will, from the 27th to the 29th June in Kampala-Munyonyo (Uganda), bring together .
