Rajasthan: A Land of Splendor and Bravery

Amina Okada (Author) Suzanne Held (Author)
Synopsis Numerous books have been dedicated to Rajasthan, cradle of proud Kingdoms, feudal and warring clans, proud lineage, home to India’s princes and a history as chivalrous as it is romantic. Among the most famous of these works is James Tod’s Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan (1829-1832). This work is due to the encyclopaedic and impassioned pen of Lieutenant-Colonel James Tod who, as a political agent of the British Raj, spent many years in Rajput territory, travelling from one principality to another and from court to court. In addition to this monumental and irreplaceable work a veritable bible for anyone interested in Rajput history and traditions-numerous historians, writers, travel-chroniclers, artists and photographers, each in turn falling under the fascinating spell of an infinitely seductive region, have set out to praise the soul of Rajasthan in their own way. This present volume belongs on the long list of works and is intended to pay homage to the legendary and glorious past of the "Land of Kings", as well as to the grandeur of the sovereigns, princes and fearless warriors who, through the vanishing centuries, wrote the history of their land in letters of fire.
