Sultans of the South China Sea

Anak_Alam has been busy, quietly posting some excellent articles to his site. He has a summary history of the spread of Islam through the Malay Archipelago that is a fascinating read. He also casually dropped an essay and a half on the Sultanates of the region in my comments section, which really ought to be highlighted. And he left a link to some more information on the Muslim history of the Phillipines, which is a tragic story all around. Manilla=Amanullah? Who knew…
Jazakallah Khayran, Anak_Alam!
