HISTORICAL THINKING IN SOUTH ASIA A Handbook of Sources from colonial times to the Present
Historical thinking in South Asia acquaints the reader with the myriad ways in which people in modern South Asia have imagined and interpreted
their past. This comprehensive volume provides a selection of sources which best exemplify the varying approaches found in historiography and
historical research, historical fiction and the arts, the use of history in political discourse, and its representation in the media. A handy
reference source rendered even more relevant within the context of the ongoing debate on history writing, this volume will be invaluable reading
for students and scholars of modern Indian history, south Asian studies, sociology, and politics, as well as the interested lay reader.
