Surjit Singh (Editor) Varsha Joshi (Editor)
Synopsis Rajasthan has rich past. People talk about Rajasthan's culture, history and polity. It has been an abode for diverse religions and the society of Rajasthan over the centuries has evolved into a well-knit fabric. The economy of Rajasthan has a feudal past and presently trying to come out of its shackles to become a modern economy. This book is a collection of select papers presented at the Fifth International Conference on Rajasthan with the theme "Multiple Histories, Ethnicity, Pluralism and Institutions". The contributors share their experiences about Rajasthan focusing on issues related to multiple histories, pluralism, multiculturalism, ethnicity and socio-cultural institutions, Tod has interested many scholars and varied interpretations of his work have been provided. There are papers that delve on his work in Rajasthan's context. The fragile environment of Rajasthan and its animal wealth has also been scrutinized. The papers in this volume, thus, focus on Rajasthan's changing face. Each paper in this volume in its own way significantly adds to the study and understanding of a mosaic that Rajasthan is. The volume no doubt would attract attention of newer scholars to study Rajasthan and reinvent it.
