Punjab Reconsidered - History, Culture And Practice - Book By Anshu Malhotra & Farina Mir

Introduction To 'Punjab Reconsidered - History, Culture And Practice' By Anshu Malhotra & Farina Mir

What is Punjabiyat? What are the different notions of Punjab? This volume analyses these ideas and explores the different aspects that constitute Punjab as a region conceptually in history, culture, and practise.

Each essay examines a different Punjabi culture-language-based and literary; religious and those that define a 'community'; rural, urban, and middle class; and historical, contemporary, and cosmopolitan. Together, these essays unravel the complex foundations of Punjabiyat.

The volume also shows how the recent history of Punjab-partition, aspirations of statehood, and a large and assertive diaspora-has had a discernible impact on the region's scholarship. Departing from conventional studies on Punjab, this book presents fresh perspectives and new insights into its regional culture.

Written by a host of eminent scholars, this book will interest scholars, students, and researchers of history, particularly  modern India, as well as sociology and cultural studies.
