The concept of Kashmiriyat has become a target of controversy between the two groups of scholars; one claiming that this has political overtones; and the other group advocating a non-political approach to this concept.
This controversy prompted this book, an anthology on the subject, containing views of various scholars from within and outside the State. The book traces and gives a historical sweep of Kashmiri culture; sociopolitical and spiritual panorama. The reader will get a deep insight into the Kashmir legacy as understood by great scholars and historians of the modern times.
The book also contains some latest findings of the recent researches undertaken by the scholars of the state and also by the foreign researchers.
