Book Description
This book examines the environmental and cultural histories of the Dangs regions of south Gujarat in western India. Instead of depending only on the conventional forms of history-writing, Skaria draws on the epochs of Dangi oral traditions and concerns about their past. These represent Dangi reflections on colonialism, modernity and history. Highlighting such reflections, Skaria suggests that we can supplement standard accounts by professional historians with hybrid histories. The book explores a crucial but almost entirely neglected theme in Indian history-the politics of wildness.
