About the Book

The contributors to this volume belong to the disciplines of history, art history, geography, political science, Economics and literature-many of them eminent in their field of interest. Their contributions make this volume multi-disciplinary, with an exceptionally wide scope, making it indispensable for all students and scholars of social sciences and humanities.

Three papers cover polity, economy and society in the Mughal Punjab; six relate to state-formation, economy, society and literature of the period of Sikh rule; one deals with Religion and art in the hills. A masterly essay delineates the major developments in the recent study of Pahari painting.

The period of colonial rule is covered by fifteen contributors who discuss political, economic and socio-cultural developments dwelling on urban society and politics; communitarian, secular and national consciousness; agrarian and urban economy; demographic and social change; Punjabi literature; and gender relations.

There are three papers on the Punjab after independence related to political economy; the bearing of agricultural growth on urbanization; and the movement for the Punjabi-speaking state.

The essay on Professor J.S. Grewal's work becomes virtually a study of new directions in the historiography of the Punjab in its political, social, economic and cultural dimensions.
