What is history? How does a land become a homeland? How are cultural identities formed? Offering cogent new answers to these fundamental questions, The Making of Early Kashmir is a cultural history of the birth of Kashmir and the discursive and material practices that constituted it into a historical region up to the 12th century CE. It critically reinterprets Kalhana’s Rajatarangini, explores its understanding of regional selfhood, and traces Kashmir’s connected histories with the rest of India. PRINTED PAGES: 222.
