Warfare and Politics in South Asia from Ancient to Modern Times

Kaushik Roy (Editor)

This volume presents fifteen original essays on warfare based on primary sources by scholars from different parts of the world. Spatially, the pieces cover the period from the Vedic to the nuclear Age. And temporally, they not only cover the whole of the subcontinent but also link the historical trajectory of South-East Asia with that of South Asia.

Warfare in this volume has been defined broadly, While some essays focus on inter-state war, others turn the focus on intra-state war. Besides war on land, several contributors also look at the naval dimension.

Moreover, all the contributors agree that warfare cannot be separated from the political matrix which surrounds organized violence like the double helix of a DNA molecule.

This volume will be of enduring value to scholars of Military History in general and South Asian Warfare in particular.
