Immensely rich and diverse documentation for the region have resulted in exceptional growth in the research conducted on the history of medieval Rajasthan. Professor Dilbagh Singh has been one of the pioneers to explore archival documents of the different principalities of Rajasthan in his research and under his guidance, generations of researchers have been able to integrate archival documentation with extraordinary literary works available on that region. This collection of essays encapsulates recent trends in exploring the history of Rajasthan envisioning medieval Rajasthan as not just the present geographical spread of the state but situating it within the larger landscape extending up to Central Asia. Most of the essays in this volume are interdisciplinary in nature, dealing, on the one hand, with the interactions between society, polity and religion, and, on the other, the significance of climate variability and the human capacity for adaptations. A set of essays deals with the fluidity of identities of communities visible in religious affairs and in matrimonial alliances. Revisiting the History of Medieval Rajasthan, thus offers fresh perspectives on the history of the region even while it re-examines the conventional narratives of the history of medieval Rajasthan. Printed Pages: 360.
