And The Sun Pursued The Moon: Symbolic Knowledge And Traditional Authority Among the Makassar
Author: Thomas Gibson
262 pages with maps and figure drawings. Over the course of a thousand years, from 600 to 1600 C.E., the Java Sea was dominated by a ring of maritime kingdoms whose rules engaged in long-distance trading, and marriage alliances with one another. This book explores the economic, political, and symbolic processes by which the early Makassar communities were incorporated into this regional system.
