Methodology Monday with the Karimjee Jivanjee Family

The University of Chicago Press is distributing for Amsterdam University Press The Karimjee Jivanjee Family: Merchant Princes of East Africa 1800-2000, by a Dutch historian Gijsbert Oonk. It is said to combine "family and political history with cultural anthropology" as well as being "a monument to cultural roots and family tenacity." Comparison with high-quality genealogical works of similar scope might be interesting.
