 DESCRIPTION
spacer
Why did Indian historians move away from the epicentric approach in the 1970s? Why did they shift their focus to localities and sub-regions from historico-geographic blocks like the Gangetic heartland and the Kaveri valley? What were the processes that helped to develop the idea of India?  Examining the questions that have shaped history-writing in India, this book maps changing perspectives about early India.
 
Focusing on the histories of regions around Odisha, Sahu argues that cultural-historical regions as they emerged through early medieval times and beyond were different from the post-Independence linguistic states as well as ancient archaeological culture regions. He posits that they were constituted historically through the interplay of the constituent sub-regions and localities, as well as in?uenced by continuous
multilateral, trans-regional transactions. Finally, he contends these regions were dynamic, expanding, and shrinking over time.
 
To understand the differences and linkages between regions, the book studies  several strands of historical development: from  the role of Brahmanical ideology in the construction of caste to the regional dimensions of the Kali Age crisis; from agrarian land systems to forms of protest and dissent; and the evolution of regional identities in Indian historiography.
