Book Description

15 Jan 2001
"[Sets] the stage for a rewriting of nearly a thousand years of history to create new understandings of the nature of cultural encounters. . . . The volume breaks free from the polemics of present-day politics and historicist distortions that have seeped into most standard texts."--David Lelyveld, Cornell UniversityThis collection challenges the popular presumption that Muslims and Hindus are irreconcilably different groups, inevitably conflicting with each other. Invoking a new vocabulary that depicts a neglected substratum of Muslim-Hindu commonality, the contributors demonstrate how Indic and Islamicate world views overlap and often converge in the premodern history of South Asia.ContentsPart 1: Literary Genres, Architectural Forms, and Identities

5.0 out of 5 stars Rich material 21 Mar 2004
By shoayb adamm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
An incredible book with rich material, the book shatters many of the myths expounded by hindu nationalists (eg The destruction of 60,000 temples), a must read!...

1.0 out of 5 stars Muslim propaganda 22 July 2005
By Chauhan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is typical trash written by an unknowing academic toeing the muslim line, blanking out centuries of loot and rapine of the feral criminal invaders from central asia and turkey. Not worth the money spent.
