History of Srinagar 1846-1947: A Study in Socio-Cultural Change

Mohammad Ishaq Khan (Author)
Synopsis The focus of this book is on the interplay of several social, economic, cultural and political forces that led to the transition of Srinagar from the medieval to the modern age during 1890-1947. The ideas which constituted public opinion in Srinagar during this period have been critically analysed. The emerging thesis is not simply modernisation of Srinagar but the historic struggle of the educated elite in preserving what may be considered of permanent and abiding value in Kashmiri culture and to assimilate from the forces of modernisation what was necessary for building up the "New Kashmir" The importance of History of Srinagar, first published in 1978, lies in great critical acclaim that it received in academic journals of international repute, national news magazins and the local Urdu press.
