By bringing together a careful selection of old and new works, seminal and recent studies by historians and social scientists, Caste in History reflects on the diverse understanding of caste in pre-colonial, colonial, and post-colonial India. It examines caste as institution and ideology and as perception and practice by charting its varied trajectories and changing contours. It also explores the experiences in everyday life of hierarchies and disabilities of caste. The result is a questioning of pervasive presuppositions regarding the given-ness of caste as involving tacit structures of belief and action. In her introduction to the volume, Ishita Banerjee-Dube discusses the varied historical and epistemological trajectories of caste as well as key debates around identity and consciousness in modern India. She further underlines issues and themes for future research. Printed Pages: 367.
