1 Irfan Habib (ed.)
India - Studies in the History of an Idea
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8121511534 / 9788121511537; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
What India means may elicit different answers from people today. The answers might have been given a thousand, two thousand or three thousand years ago would have been possibly quite different. This volume explores how notions of India have grown: even as a geographical expression the notion (under whatever name) took time to form. Political factors and cultural diffusion both helped in the formation. Nor is the role of outsiders in looking at India as country with some identifiable features of custom, belief, and language, to be ignored. The different contributions in this volume bring out how the idea of India has changed as Indian civilization has developed and received various cultural streams. The contributors also essay the issue of India's transformation into a nation under the stresses generated by the colonial conquest, resistance and the influx of modern ideas. The volume closes with discussions how the future of the nation was conceived in the past and what message this has for the people of India today. Printed Pages: 280. 015716

3 Irfan Habib (ed.)
Medieval India I - Essays in the History of India 1200-1750
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 1998; 0195646584 / 9780195646580; Paperback; New; New; 
Medieval Indian history has gained much from recent researches, based on a more extensive and critical use of sources and directed towards the illumination of aspects of political, social, economic and cultural history that had previously been inadequately treated. The papers collected in this volume draw mainly upon work done at Aligarh, the principal seat of Medieval Indian studies today. They aim at exploring new themes without abating the rigour of the `orientalist' tradition. The period covered extends from 1200 to 1750, and the themes touched upon belong to agrarian relations, civil engineering, ruling-class and religion. There is also a translation from and notes on an important document dating to Aurangzeb's reign. Printed Pages: 234 with maps and tables. 033601
