About the book: Muslims in India first appeared in 8th century and opened a new age of Indo-Muslim interaction. The study of this interaction in the context of historical, cultural and other dimensions requires access to vast resources - human, institutional and documentary. There is a dearth of any kind of systematic user-oreinted information in this area. Whatever little exists, is neither comprehensive nor exhaustive. The present book is an attempt to initiate a process of bridging the wide gap -- between the resources and the potential users of this field. It is hoped that it will serve multiple purposes. Primarily it will identify the various types of resources that are required for study and research and give way for tapping a larger world of hidden resources. The secondary purpose it will serve is of providing a base for large studies in this area: Survey of institutions identified ( in terms of history of the institution, activities, services, publications, contact persons, specialists, etc.), and also survey of documents listed, for indepth qualitative and quantitative studies. The book then has two distinct features, first, as single resource that lists that many resources under one cover, and presents a ready-made platform for transfering the full data into an electronic database. It will be a model for all area study resources, in the world. This handy reference book is useful for historians, sociologists, Indologists, Islamologists, Orientalists, and many other scholars in the world of learning.Was this review helpful?
