Historians and Historiography of Orissa

Laxmikanta Mishra (Author) Sitakanta Mishra (Author)
Synopsis The Book “Historians and Historiography of Orissa: A Study in Perception and Appropriation of Orissan History” is the result of the authors’ years of painstaking research in the area of Orissan historiography. The broad contours, parameters and the detours of historiographical perception of Orissan history right from the ancient period till the modern has been comprehensively drawn which remained till the present a more or less unexplored area. Besides historiography of the ancient and medieval period, the modern historiography of Orissa which began with the British period, has been analysed broadly under such categories as Orientalist-colonialist, nationalist, biased and sober historical writings. Further since the Raj remained, all through the Imperial rule in India, the central piece of the British empire, the historiography of the British period in Orissa has been discussed in the backdrop of the multi-dimensional aspects of the perceptions and sensibilities which denote the British attitude to Indian history. The book is a pioneering attempt on Orissan historiography.
