This book traces the evolution of a process of interaction between brahmanism and the indigenous social groups of Bengal during the early medieval period. Addressing two significant methodological issues—the reading of didactic Sanskritic texts for the reconstruction of early Indian history, and the application of contemporary anthropological concepts to such texts to help elucidate cultural contestations—Chakrabarti examines a civilizational process fundamental to the unfolding of Indian history. PRINTED PAGES: 380.
