A new and authoritative synthesis of history, culture and political economy that introduces the readers not merely to new interpretations of topics but to new perspectives on the subject of modern South Asia.
This book is a comprehensive and subtle history of South Asia which addresses the issues which currently dominate a highly creative body of historical writings.
The authors' purpose in Modern South Asia is to synthesize the illuminating but partial disciplinary accounts about South Asia's complex modernity into one intelligible narrative.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
'..The book is a tour de force that admirably synthesizes much of the historical research without falling into the trap of new orthodoxies.'
