Item description for Ritual, State, and History in South Asia: Essays in Honour of J.C. Heesterman (Memoirs of the Kern Institute, No 5) by D. H. A. Kolff & A. W. Van Den Hoek...
The contributions to this liber amicorum extend over the whole range of Indian civilisation. The contents are arranged into two sections. In the first part those articles are brought together which bear upon the earlier stages of Indian history or upon the reconstruction of a certain epoch. The contents of this section, which, in historical terms, span the period from the Indus civilisation up to medieval times, include several fine pieces of textual analysis. The second section contains contributions on the more recent history of South Asia alongside articles that examine ancient features which have persisted till the present day.
