Ancient Rajasthan: research developments, epigraphic evidence on political power centres, and historical perspectives
Chakrabarti, Dilip K.
This volume begins by offering a detailed review of the major stages and character of ancient historical research in Rajasthan till c.1950, highlighting the way in which this research had distinguishing features of its own and how James Tod played a stellar role in the process of establishing Rajasthan as a distinct field of scholarly enquiry.
