The Mughals, the Portuguese and the Indian Ocean: Changing Meanings and Imageries of Maritime India by Pius Malekandathil from Primus Books.

This volume explores the changing meanings that maritime India acquired during the early modern period owing to the frequent efforts of the Mughals and the Portuguese from two different fronts to control its vast resourceful enclaves and profit-yielding neighbourhoods. By analysing the highly nuanced socio-economic processes and addressing the themes that have not been explored before, this volume creates a new framework for understanding the changing nature of maritime India.
