About This Book

The essays in this volume help us understand the concerns and problems that have informed scholarly reflection among historians of South Asia, on pre-colonial and colonial India. In their scope and depth, the essays here seek to serve as correctives to the conventional perspectives in Indian history, particularly on the social consequences of colonialism, and the socio-economic history of the pre-colonial period. The issues discussed include the effects of learning and education in colonial India, aspects of social reforms and caste-based politics, and the emergence of religious identities, leading to the problem of communalism in the modern period. Other essays dwell on the subject of cultural nationalism, and its limitations in the development of the modern nation state in India.
