India's Medieval and Modern Past

 
Shankar Goyal (Editor)
Synopsis The present volume gives emphasis on the new orientation which is being given to study of these periods. For example, it provides a detailed study of the middle class in medieval India, social legislation and public reaction in modern India, status and empowerment of women in modern India, and also Itihasa-Darsana, Marxist view of history and Nehru's universalistic view of history. Some old topics which have not lost their appeal such as medieval paintings, Akbar's attitude towards Rana Pratap, British relations with Mewar, ideology of the Congress Socialist Party, and the Muslims of the Indo-Pak sub-continent have also been discussed and included in it. We, therefore, believe that it will be found useful and interesting by all the researchers, teachers, students and general readers and will be regarded as a 'must' for every university and college and also for the personal libraries of individual scholars.

About the author

Shankar Goyal

Dr. Shankar Goyal (b. 1959), the young and ebullient author of the present monograph, is emerging very rapidly as one of the recognized authorities on the historiography of ancient India. He has already produced three monographs dealing with some aspects of ancient Indian history writing viz. History and Historiography of the Age of Harsha (Jodhpur, 1992), Aspects of Ancient Indian History and Historiography (New Delhi, 1993) and History Writing of Early India (Jodhpur, 1996). He has co-edited a number of works with such eminent scholars as Professors G.C. Pande, B. Ch. Chhabra and Jagannath Agrawal which are directly or indirectly concerned with this discipline, including Political History in a Changing World (Jodhpur, 1992), Reappraising Gupta History (New Delhi, 1992) and S.R. Goyal: His Multidimensional Historiography (New Delhi, 1992). He has also-co-edited several other monographs with Shri M.C. Joshi and Dr. Sobhag Maghur which include King Chandra and the Meharauli Pillar (Meerut, 1989), Spectrum of Nehru’s Thought (New Delhi, 1994) and Rajasthan Bharati, in two volumes (Jodhpur, 1995) and authored more than seventy research articles. His research output in a period of less than six years has been stupendous, and its originality and quality superb, as is evident from the reviews of his works appearing in national and international journals. Dr. Shankar Goyal did his graduation from the University of Rajasthan, Jaipur, post-graduation from the Deccan College, Pune, and Doctrate on Main Trends in Indian Historiography Since Independence from the University of Jodhpur, Jodhpur, where he is presently working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of History.
