Warfare, Religion and Society in Indian History
Warfare, Religion and Society
in Indian History
By- Raziuddin Aquil and Kaushik
This volume includes essays
on a wide range of themes, marked by various distinct approaches to the study
of connections between religion and warfare in Indian history from earliest
times to the present. Such a collection could possibly cause some
consternations, even as editors began with the basic premise that some of the
critical questions be discussed as freely as possible, despite constraints of
ideological barriers limiting the fields of inquiry.
Written by a mix of veterans
as well as young scholars—Raziuddin Aquil, Richard B. Barnett, C.A. Bayly,
Torkel Brekke, Richard M. Eaton, Michael H. Fisher, Pratyay Nath, Kaushik Roy,
Arupjyoti Saikia, and Sandhya Sharma—the essays will provoke some debate on
what all could possibly be undertaken as legitimate historical exercise and
whether it is impossible to write a professional and non-partisan history of
such politically sensitive issues as the entanglement of religion and warfare
in Indian history and society.
