Genealogy, Archive, Image: Interpreting Dynastic History in Western India, C.1090-2016
Published by De Gruyter
The book addresses the ways in which history and tradition are 'reinvented' through text, memory and painting. It examines the making of dynastic history in the kingdom of Jhalavad, from the eleventh to twentieth centuries. The essays critique a collection of contemporary miniature paintings, which chart the dynastic history of Jhalavad's rulers and the textual and ethnographic archive upon which they are based.
