The introduction situates the history of the African diaspora in Arabia in the context of the wider historiography of the Indian Ocean and the global African diaspora. This chapter argues that approaching the history of the African diaspora in the Gulf requires breaking from standard economic histories of the Indian Ocean, departing from some traditional understandings of globalization and the history of capitalism, challenging conventions about British imperialism, and reconsidering the primacy of the Atlantic in diaspora studies.
