Rajasthan: From Prehistory to The Independence Era

 
Shankar Goyal (Editor)
Synopsis Rajasthan is famous throughout the world for its heroic sons and daughters. Its history is full of glorious tales of their sacrifices and heroic deeds. But it is also full of problems and interesting episodes. The culture of Rajasthan, though an integral part of the great Indian cultural world, has also its distinctive features. The present volume seeks to re-study the history and culture of this region in the light of the new material which is being constantly discovered and in the light of new interpretations which have become imperative due to the changing historiographical attitudes. We are sure that it will be found highly interesting and useful not only by the researchers, teachers and students but also by the general readers interested in the history of India in general and of Rajasthan in particular.

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.
