Andaya (Asian studies, U. of Hawaii) examines how the arrival of the Dutch and English impacted the relationship between two kingdoms in Sumatra, the Jambi and the Palembang, who had a long history of cyclical hostility and reconciliation. She focuses on three themes culled from legends and folklore: the relationship between the ruler and the subject, the importance of kinship in all human dealings, and the ambivalent association between upstream and downstream.
