Across the South of Asia

Synopsis


This collection of essays takes a broad view of South Asian art and culture by providing a wide geographic and chronological scope.  Each essay on its own constitutes a solid, well-grounded academic study, but taken collectively they provide a wide and inclusive  view of issues of art and material culture that span the region and invite comparison.  This collection of essays invites readers to take a broad view of South Asian art and culture by providing a wide geographic and chronological scope. The articles are united only by their focus on art, historical and archaeological concerns and their concentration on South Asia, ranging from Afghanistan to  the island kingdoms of Indonesia. Each essay on its own constitutes a solid, well-grounded academic study, but taken collectively they provide a  wide and inclusive view of issues of art and material culture that span the region and invite comparison. By taking this approach, this volume is  a tribute to Prof. Robert L. Brown whose lifetime of teaching has always emphasized connections as well as differences. Over his professional career,  he has trained a large cohort of students (many of whom are contributors to this volume) whose expertise truly does reach across the south of Asia.  CONTENTS Foreword vii — Tushara Bindu Gude Preface xiii Works of Prof. Robert L.
