This volume brings together ten of Pamela Priceís essays that appeared between 1979 and 2010, presenting studies from different political domains and linguistic areas. They represent the authorís long involvement with political culture in south India. They focus on conceptions of honour, authority, and morality. Price examines both change and continuity in ideas, values and symbols in colonial and post colonial south Indian politics. She outlines evolution in cultural meanings of power and influence under imperial rule and later under electoral regimes, giving evidence of individual agency in cultural constructions. A running theme in political performances in post-colonial state politics, and one which she pursues in several of the essays in this collection, is the politics of honour and respect commanded by public figures that sheds light on the multifaceted nature of domination. Honour and respect and the dynamics of competition to command these attributes are topics of increasing interest in scholarship on south India to which she has made significant contributions.Printed Pages: 348.
