Description
About The Book:

HISTORICAL THINKING IN SOUTH ASIA A Handbook of Sources from colonial times to the Present

Historical thinking in South Asia acquaints the reader with the myriad ways in which people in modern South Asia have imagined and interpreted their past. This comprehensive volume provides a selection of sources which best exemplify the varying approaches found in historiography and historical research, historical fiction and the arts, the use of history in political discourse, and its representation in the media.
A handy reference source rendered even more relevant within the context of the ongoing debate on history writing, this volume will be invaluable reading for students and scholars of modern Indian history, south Asian studies, sociology, and politics, as well as the interested lay reader.

About The Author:

Michael Gottlob is currently an independent researcher and historian based in Bergamo, Italy.
