The Historical Relations between Oman and Balochistan in the Indian Ocean

Beatrice Nicolini, Educatt., Milano, 2018, 80 pp.

This study will open the discussion on the Baloch people from South Central Asia and their role in the Persian-Arab Gulf and in East Africa during the nineteenth and twentieth century. The major motivations to Baloch movements were originated from environmental issues as well as from socio-economic and political conditions in their land. These conditions implied numerous consequences such as the expansion of lawless habits throughout their region, enslaving by external powerful groups, and the progressive creation of new roles in the Gulf region and in East Africa such as the military one.
