Series Description

The India Studies Series is a timely series that represents the most innovative and original work being done in the broad field defined as “India studies.” This book series will publish outstanding research on India (and its diaspora) across a wide range of disciplines including anthropology, economics, history, literature, politics, sociology and the fields of cultural studies and gender studies, which will contribute to contemporary debates about Indian history and society. It presents research monographs and high-quality edited volumes as well as textbook on topics concerning the Indian subcontinent and its diaspora.
This is the first interdisciplinary book series devoted to in-depth studies of emergent India, with its ethnically diverse population and soaring economies. The purpose of this series is to increase understanding of this complex, and dynamic country. In spite of its primary scholarly focus, the series includes work of an interdisciplinary nature so that it attracts a wide readership. Thus, books address not only to a scholarly audience, but also to those interested in this important region in the global context.
