about

The society of traditional India is frequently characterized as static and dominated by caste. This study challenges older interpretations, arguing that medieval India was actually a time of dynamic change and fluid social identities. Using records of religious endowments from Andhra Pradesh,author Cynthia Talbot reconstructs a regional society of the precolonial past as it existed in practice.
