This volume originates from the proceedings of an international conference convened by the Department of History and Civilisation, International Islamic University Malaysia, in collaboration with the Embassy of the Republic of Yemen in Kuala Lumpur, from 26th to 28th August 2005. Twelve out of thirty-five papers presented at the conference have been reviewed, thoroughly revised and published in this volume under the title: "The Hadhrami Diaspora in Southeast Asia: Identity Maintenance or Assimilation?". The introduction and the twelve chapters address the question of the "Hadhrami Identity in Southeast Asia" from various perspectives, and investigate the patterns of the Hahdrami interaction with diverse cultures, values and beliefs in the region. Special attention is paid to the Hadhrami local and transnational politics, social stratification and integration, religio-social reform and journalism, as well as economic dynamism, and the cosmopolitan character of the Hadhrami societies in Southeast Asia.
