Price: $17.00

Publisher: New Delhi, Oxford University Press: 2018

Seller ID: 900589

ISBN: 0199482926


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.

The Rigveda is the oldest and most important source of material for India, Indo-Aryan, and even Indo-European history. It is a text which has been part of a hoary and widespread living tradition thousands of years old. Naturally, a text which has remained alive, as part of a living tradition, for so long cannot and should not be analysed without reference to what that tradition has to say about it. 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...

Almost all the branches of Indology, history, culture, art, philosophy, poetics and aesthetics have become richer by the touch of his creative and sharp intellect. The scope and scale of his output have no doubt been encyclopedic, but the word encyclopedic does not say all about the nature of his works. Several minds expressed in several themes make an encyclopedia, in the case of Prof. Pande, however, there is no mistaking the same mind expressing itself in... View more info

Price: $15.00

Publisher: Shimla, Indian Institute of Advanced Studies: 2010

Seller ID: 901324

ISBN: 8179860841


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. The work may be called an elaboration and clarification of Indian Philosophy of History. Understanding Itihasa in fact stoutly and cogently contests the stereotypical view that early India lacked a sense of history. With patience, care and sympathy the monograph studies and analyzes a host of te... View more info

Niyoga: Alternative Mechanism to Lineage Perpetuation in Early India

The book attempts to explore the institution of niyoga in early India, examining its genesis and trajectory through the temporal and spatial canvas, for though the focus remains on the early period, the fluctuations are best studied over a larger span of time. The early texts refer to niyoga as apaddhamma, a practice to be resorted to only in times of exigency. Niyoga allowed a married woman to cohabit with a designated male if her husband was infertile or had died without leaving an heir. Niyoga, therefore, emerged as an alternative to lineage perpetuation with due normative sanction. Printed... View more info
