As an archaeologist Shereen Ratnagar has been long involved in studying the enigma of early kin-organized, small-scale and non-specialized societies which lack private landed-property and are free of a money economy; societies that we call tribal. Having conducted ethno-archaeological research amongst the tribal people in eastern Gujarat, she spent a few months living with them to investigate how, in spite of their miniscule land holdings, they are able to raise cash crops, year after year. Far from being abject or 'primitive', tribal people schedule their subsistence in a rational way, wh... View more info

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.

In the present volume, the author has confirmed emphatically that India was also the original homeland not only of the Indo-Aryans but also of the Indo-Iranians and the Indo-Europeans.;The author ha...

Understanding Itihasa is an in-depth exploration of the traditional Indian outlook on past. It examines how early India looked at human past, how it considered and evaluated the value and significance of past and how it endeavoured to preserve the memory of the past it regarded as preservation worthy.

Understanding Itihasa in fact stoutly and cogently contests the stereotypical view that early India lacked a sense of history.
