Epic and Argument in Sanskrit Literary History: Epic and Argument in Sanskrit Literary History: Pollock, Sheldon (ed.) xv,264p Manohar 2020(10) 4,732円 Epic poetry, Sanskrit -- Vedic literature -- History and criticism This celebrates the distinguished career of the American Indologist Robert P. Goldman. The essays on Sanskrit literary history, which range from the danastutui in the Rgveda(Romila Thapar) to the transformation of literary theory in ninth-century Kashmir(Sheldon Pollock) to the practice of philology in seventeenth century Varanasi(Chirstopher Minkowski), reflect the wide range of interests of Professor Goldman himself, and the wide influence he has exerted on the field. Eight of the essays(by such leading scholars as Greg Bailey, John Brockington, James Fitzgerald, Luis Gonzalez-Reimann, PHyllis Granoff, Alf Hiltebeitel, Adheesh Sathaye, and Sally Sutherland Goldman), concentrate on the epics and Puranas, and as an ensemble make for essential reading on the genre of Sanskrit literature to which Goldman, as editor-in-chief of the Ramayana Translation Project, has devoted the greater part of his career. The scholarly essays are book ended by the survey of Professor Goldman's scholarly contributions(Deven Patel) and a lively personal reminiscence

(ed.) xxxi,499p Motilal 2012(1996) 3,148円 Sanskrit language -- Philosophy -- Indo-Aryan languages -- Grammar -- History The present volume is the outcome of a seminar on the Ideology and Status of Sanskrit held in Leiden under the auspices of the International Institute for Asian Studies. The book contains studies of crucial periods and important areas in the history of the Sanskrit language, from the earliest, Vedic and pre-Vedic periods, through the period in which the (restricted) use of Sanskrit spread over practically all of South (including part of Central) and Southeast Asia (sometimes referred to as the period of 'Greater India') up to the recent history of Sanskrit in India. This volume are divided into three sections: 1. Origins and creation of the 'Eternal Language'; 2. Transculturation, Vernacularization,; Sanskritization,; 3. The Sanskrit Tradition: Continuity from the Past or Construction from the Present?
CASTE: the emergence of the South Asian social system. CASTE: the emergence of the South Asian social system. Klass, Morton xxv,212p Manohar 2020(1980) 4,336円 Caste -- South Asia How and why did the caste system emerge in South Asia? Why do con-temporary anthropologists and Indologists experience so much difficulty with this problem? Morton Klass addresses both of these questions in this book, and the result is an intellectual adventure story, an essay in ethnohistorical deduction and reconstruction. Klass begins by examining the assumptions underlying the older explanations of the origin of caste, tracing their roots in dubious history, ethnocentrism, and outmoded theory. Then, using contemporary anthro-pological writings on ecology, economy, social structure, and cultural evolution, he develops a scenario in which caste emerges as a trans-formation of an earlier clan structure that until now has been considered an evolutionary 'dead end'.

India in the Persianate Age 1000-1765. India in the Persianate Age 1000-1765. Eaton, R. M. 489p. Allen Lane (Penguin Books) 2019 6,909円 Mogul Empire -- India -- History -- 1000-1765 Protected by vast mountains and seas, the Indian subcontinent might seem a nearly complete and self-contained world with its own religions, philosophies, and social systems. And yet this ancient land and its varied societies experienced prolonged and intense interaction with the peoples and cultures of East and Southeast Asia, Europe, Africa, and especially Central Asia and the Iranian plateau. Richard M. Eaton tells this extraordinary story with relish and originality, as he traces the rise of Persianate culture, a many-faceted transregional world connected by ever-widening networks across much of Asia. Introduced to India in the eleventh century by dynasties based in eastern Afghanistan, this culture would become progressively indigenized in the time of the great Mughals (sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries). Eaton brilliantly elaborates the complex encounter between India's Sanskrit culture--an equally rich and transregional complex that continued to flourish and grow throughout this period--and Persian culture, which helped shape the Delhi Sultanate, the Mughal Empire, and a host of regional states. This long-term process of cultural interaction is profoundly reflected in the languages, literatures, cuisines, attires, religions, styles of rulership and warfare, science, art, music, and architecture--and more--of South Asia.

Connected History: essays and arguments. Connected History: essays and arguments. Subrahmanyam, Sanjay xiv,288p pap. Verso 2021 5,354円 Indic Mythology -- History and criticism -- Historiography -- English fiction Sanjay Subrahmanyam is becoming well known for the same sort of reasons that attach to Fernand Braudel and Carlo Ginzburg, as the proponent of a new kind of history - in his case, not longue duree or micro-history, but 'connected history': connected cross-culturally, and spanning regions, subjects and archives that are conventionally treated alone. Not a research paradigm, he insists, it is more of an oppositionswissenschaft, a way of trying to constantly break the moulds of historical objects. The essays collected here, some quite polemical - as in the lead text on the notion of India-as-civilization, or another, assessing such a literary totem as V. S. Naipaul - illustrate the breadth of Subrahmanyam's concerns, as well as the quality of his writing. Connected History considers what, exactly, is an empire, the rise of 'the West' (less of a place than an idea or ideology, he insists), Churchill and the Great Man theory of history, the reception of world literature and the itinerary of subaltern studies, in addition to personal recollections of life and work in Delhi, Paris and Lisbon, and concluding remarks on the practice of early-modern history and the framing of historical enquiry.

The 'Early Medieval' Origins of India. The 'Early Medieval' Origins of India. Devadevan, Manu V. xi,516p Cambridge U.P. 2020 4,378円 India -- Civilization -- History -- To 1200 India is generally regarded as a civilization with a set of intrinsic attributes that emerged in the age of the Vedas or, better still, in the Harappan times. In recent decades, historical studies have moved away from rigid perspectives of singularity in origin and expansion; the emphasis now is on pluralities and long-term processes spanning centuries and millennia. There is also an influential school of thought which rejects antiquity claims such as these and holds that India is a construct of the colonial and nationalist imagination. In his radical reinterpretation of India's past, Manu V. Devadevan moves away from these reifying assessments to examine the evolution of institutions, ideas and identities that are characterized, typically, as Indian. In lieu of endorsing their Indianness, he traces their emergence to specific conditions that developed in India between 600 and 1200 CE, a period which historians now call the 'early medieval'.
From Dasarajna to Kuruksetra: making of a historical tradition. From Dasarajna to Kuruksetra: making of a historical tradition. Sinha, Kanad xxv,548p Oxford U.P. 2021 7,108円 A conclusive study on the historicity of the Mahabharata From Dāśarājña to Kuruksetra: Making of a Historical Tradition/ Dr Kanad Sinha Is it true that the ancient Indians had no sense of History? The book begins with this question, and points out how the ways of perceiving the past could be culture-specific and how the concept of historical traditions can be useful in studying the various ways of memorising and representing the past, even if those ways do not necessarily correspond to the methodology of the Occidental discipline called 'History'. Ancient India had several historical traditions, and the book focuses on one of them, the itihasa. It also shows how the Mahabharata is the best illustration of this tradition, and how a historical study of the contents of the text, with comparison with and corroboration from other contemporary sources and traditions, may help us restore the text in its original context in the bardic historical tradition about the Later Vedic Kurus. Is the Mahabharata then an authentic history? This book does not claim so. However, it shows how the text had originated as a critical reflection on a great period of transition, how it dealt with the conflicting philosophies of the transitional period, how it propounded its thesis by creating new kinds of heroes such as Yudhisthira and Krsna, and how the text was reworked when it was canonized by the brahmanas.
Painters, Paintings and Books: an essay on Indo-Persian technical literature, 12-19th centuries. Painters, Paintings and Books: an essay on Indo-Persian technical literature, 12-19th centuries. Porter, Yves xiv,249p ills. Manohar 2019(1994) 4,732円 Illumination of books and manuscripts, Iranian -- Themes, motives -- Technique The work aims at bringing the Persian texts into the study of the arts and technology of the Indo-lranian world – an approach much neglected so far. Drawing upon Persian sources (both from Iran and India), viz., technical treatises, historical chronicles and poetical texts, the work deals with painting and the art of book making during twelfth to nineteenth century.The introduction presents the geographical and chronological dimensions of the study. After a brief history of Persian painting before the twelfth century, the book discusses mural painting, manuscripts, origin of paper and its fabrication, the composition of the page, colours/pigments used in the paintings, painting subjects, bookbinding, etc. The painter, man and artist, his origin, his training, his status, aesthetics and taste, his workshop and its organisation and distribution of tasks therein, modular construction of the manuscripts, library, the caligraphy surrounding the painting, its illuminations and binding are all analysed. In fact the book reconstructs the entire process of making an illustrated manuscript from its ground work to its binding. Persian text and illustrations enhance the utility of the work.

Wigen (ed.) x,261p pap. U. of Hawaii Pr. 2017(07) 4,997円 Coasts -- Navigation -- History -- Congresses Historians have only recently begun to chart the experiences of maritime regions in rich detail and penetrate the historical processes at work there. 'Seascapes' makes a major contribution to these efforts by bringing together original scholarship on historical issues arising from maritime regions around the world. The essays presented here take a variety of approaches. One group examines the material, cultural, and intellectual constructs that explain historical experiences of maritime regions. Another set discusses efforts to impose political and military control over these regions. A third group focuses on the social history of subaltern populations. The final essays deal with piracy in Mediterranean, Japanese, and Atlantic waters.
