Historical works on the Indian Ocean region to date have assumed the concept of the self-consistent “Indian Ocean World (IOW)”, which consisted of various interdependent parts along the ocean. Should we still consider this concept as the given assumption? Emphasizing the independence or self-consistency of the “world”, the historiography on the “IOW” might alienate other regional “worlds” in the same way national histories once did one another. This presentation tries to suggest a different perspective in order to place the 19th century western Indian Ocean region in the context of the whole world of the period.
