Review:

"Wat het boek toch zeer de moeite waard maakt, is dat jonge Aziatische historici zich mengen in wat nieuwe wetenschappelijke en theoretische discussies zijn. Deze historici zijn sterk gericht op archiefonderzoek en beheersen vaak meerdere Europese en Aziatische talen. Veel informatie wordt geput uit de archieven van het VOC, maar vaak in combinatie met Aziatische bronnen. De traditionele aandacht voor de geschiedenis van de Europese expansie verschuift met hun onderwerpskeuzes ook naar de geschiedenis van Azië zelf."
- Chris Nierstrasz, in Tijdschrift voor Zeegeschiedenis, No. 1 Jr. 35, 2016
"[The chapters in this edited volume] show us how the spaces themselves were linked by merchant activity over space and time. In this, Hinternlands and Commodities is quite useful, shedding light on different parts of Asia and through varying lenses, all over a "long century" of recorded interactions."
- Eric Tagliacozzo (Cornell University), Journal of World History, December 2016, pp. 724-735
