This volume celebrates the work of Professor John F. Richards (d. 2007) a historian who significantly changed our understanding of the Mughals medieval Deccan and environmental history. Expanding Frontiers in South Asian and World History has brought together eminent scholars of South Asian and Global History who were colleagues and associates of Professor John F. Richards to discuss themes that marked his work as a historian in an academic career spanning almost forty years. It encapsulates discussions under the rubric of ‘frontiers’ in multiple contexts – frontiers and state building; frontiers and environmental change; cultural frontiers; frontiers trade and drugs; and frontiers and world history. It reflects at once in the spirit of Professor Richards’ own work a concern for large-scale global processes as well as for the detailed specificities of each historical case.Printed Pages: 380.
