Book Description

 The political geography of Rajasthan in medieval times stretched far beyond modern day boundaries of State of Rajasthan. This wider geographic exapnse has been most rigorously and scrupulously examined by Prof. G.S.L. Devra. His scholarship has explored conventional and unconventional dimensions of historical pasts which began with the exploration of the revenue administration of Bikaner and went on to examine the nuances of human-nature interactions. His ability to move between Persian-Vernacular and Oral sources influenced writings of successive generations. This collection of essays covers a vast temporal span of the history of Rajasthan. Latest researches in the ancient past of the region based on recent excavations and examination of the post-colonial history of Rajasthan have been put together. Along with wide temporal expanse, this volume focuses on questions of Raja-Dharma, Santic communities, genealogies of geographies, urban studies along with the study of symbols and practices adopted during British colonial rule, identity formations of nomadic communities and tribal social formations. Reconfiguring the Historical Landscapes of Rajasthan: Essays for G.S.L. Devra, hence encapsulates recent researches on the region and goes beyond medieval orientation of history writing traditions of the region.
