their interactions and outlines.

The epicentre of the Muslim universe,


Mecca attracts hundreds of thousands of
believers every year. Pilgrimage, Politics,
and Pestilence studies the organization
and meanings of the Haj from India during
colonial times and analyses it from political,
commercial, and medical perspectives
between 1860, the year of the first
outbreak of cholera epidemic in Mecca,
and 1920, when the subject of holy places
of Islam became a very powerful political
symbol in the Indian subcontinent. Contrary
to the general belief about colonial policy
of non-intervention into religious subjects,
the book argues that the state, in fact, kept
a close watch on the pilgrimage.

interest to scholars and students of modern
Indian history, cultural and Islamic studies,

institutionalization of various environmental
imaginings. It explores a range of topics
including colonial forestry, plantation

student frontlines in research terrain.
The volumes in the series are extremely useful for students and teachers.

The Partition of British India has left more


questions than answers. In the wake of the

there emerged looming questions: Why
was India partitioned in 1947?; Was
it inevitable? This book chronicles the

analyse the timing and causation of
Partition. From first-hand accounts of the
process of Partition to the reconstruction
of the experiences of the subordinate and
the marginal, this book presents balanced
analyses of the process and events leading
to the Partition. It locates long term
imperatives in Hindu and Muslim revivalist
movements of the nineteenth century;
regional factors with focus on the United
Provinces, Punjab, and Bengal; as well as
the international contexts.
Readership: Addressing several issues like
identity, communalism, and regionalism,

Srinivasa Rao is former Professor,


Department of Philosophy, Bangalore
University. Formerly affiliated to IIT Kanpur,
he also taught at Mysore University.
9780198079811 2011 HB Rs 695

Advaita is one of the most influential


traditions of the Vedanta schools of
philosophy. However, its study and scope
have been limited by the rigid frameworks
of classical Indian philosophy. Apart from
attempts to compare it to the philosophies
of Kant and Bradley, little has been done
in contemporary times. Underscoring the
need to think creatively, this book offers
a systematic contemporary critique of
Advaita, and examines and evaluates some
basic misconceptions.
Readership: Challenging the accepted
norms of the Advaita parampara, and
yet very much a part of it, this study will
interest scholars, teachers, and students of
Indian philosophy.

Indian philosophy. With detailed notes and
annotations as well as a critical introduction,

from traditional analyses of Kant.
