Overview

Diversity, Identity and Linkages: Explorations in Historical Ethnography by K.S. Singh

The essays in this volume explore the diversities, affinities, and linkages between different traditions of Indian ethnography, broadly divided into three categories.

The first group of essays explore the indigenous traditions of ethnography, ranging from the epic traditions of the Mahabharata and the Dharmashastra to the Varna Ratnakara. The second group of essays explores colonial ethnography—the colonials' documentation of caste, tribe, and races, as well as their methodologies like the census. The last group deals with post-colonial ethnography where ideas such as 'pluralism', 'synthesis', 'composite culture', and 'unity in diversity' is explored. The Foreword by Sabyasachi Bhattacharya gives an overview of K.S. Singh's work in the field as well as his writings.
