Kings, Brahmanas and Temples in Orissa: An epigraphic study, AD 330-1147
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1994; 8121506212 / 9788121506212; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Royal endowments to Brahmanas have been interpreted either as a factor of political integration or disintegration in Indian history. Through the first thorough presentation and analysis of the epigraphic data from Orissa, this study argues that the period AD 300-1147 was one of intensive state formation and political development in which royal grants played an important integrative role. During this period, Brahmanas, many of whom were ritual specialists associated with the Yajurveda, emerged as land-holders endowed by royal decree with privileged control over land. Despite the consistent appearance of sectarian affiliations in the royal inscriptions, temples did not benefit from royal patronage on a comparable scale. Until the close of the period under review, it was the gift of land to Brahmanas, not the royally-endowed temple establishment that was a major basis of royal legitimation and political integration in Orissa.

Rethinking Early Medieval India: A Reader
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2011; 0198070020 / 9780198070023; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This reader presents a new understanding of the early medieval period of Indian history (c. 600-1300 CE), highlighting the complex and multilinear nature of its historical processes. The widely divergent perspectives on this period are linked to issues of periodization and the identification of historical continuities and change. The book examines the major historiographical debates and also moves beyond them, throwing alight on many important aspects of the social, economic, political and cultural history of the pre-Sultanate and non-Sultanate early medieval. The volume brings together a careful selection of readings, including seminal essays as well as recent writing. Comprehensive and thought-provoking, it discusses: theoretical frameworks, namely the feudalism, segmentary state, and integrative/processual models political processes, including the interaction between states and forest tribes village and city life, with a focus on agrarian structure, urban patterns, trade, varna, jati, and gender religion, art and culture, within and beyond regional frameworks histories of language, literature, ideas, attitudes, and emotions The introduction provides presents a critical and incisive overview and analysis of debates and writings related to a wide range of historical issues. In doing so, it raises new questions, suggests new approaches, and opens up possibilities for future research. Printed Pages: 368. 036525

The Discovery of Ancient India: Early Archaeologists and the Beginnings of Archaeology
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8178241277 / 9788178241272; Softcover; New; 
This book is written as much for the general reader interested in India's antiquity and its pioneering archaeologists, as for students of the history of archaeology, colonialism, and constructions of the past. It breaks colonial archaeology down into its specific constituents and examines the ideas, impulses, tensions, and individual contributions that comprised early studies of India's ancient past. It focuses, at the outset, on the ideas and work of Alexander Cunningham, the first Director General of the Archaeological Survey of India, as well as his assistants. It then looks at a number of related issues-the different definitions of archaeological research; the conflict between field archaeologists and architectural scholars; the debate over whether antiquities should be left in situ or removed to museums; the different approaches and initiatives towards the conservation of historical monuments. Finally, it looks at the contributions of Indian scholars to archaeology, and at the Indian princes vis-a-vis the conservation of historical monuments.Printed Pages: 410. 101970
