Culture, Polity and Economy
India's region of Rajasthan has a rich past with its culture, history, and polity. It has been an abode for diverse religions. Over the centuries, the society of Rajasthan has evolved into a well-knit fabric. The economy has a feudal past and presently Rajasthan is trying to come out of its shackles to become a modern economy. This book is a collection of select papers presented at the Fifth International Conference on Rajasthan with the theme "Multiple Histories, Ethnicity, Pluralism, and Institutions." The contributors share their experiences about Rajasthan, focusing on issues related to multiple histories, pluralism, multiculturalism, ethnicity, and socio-cultural institutions. Each paper in this volume, in its own way, significantly adds to the study and understanding of a mosaic that Rajasthan is.
