Periphery and centre: studies in Orissan history, religion and anthropology

Pfeffer, Georg (ed.)

₹ 1250.00

In an interdisciplinary effort this historical study covers the so-called iron-age in Western Orissa and questions the established foundation date of one of the major coastal temples. Conditions of early colonialism are exemplified by a report on a typical road construction, just as popular protest movements of that phase, as well as the ambivalent position of their leaders and the issue of conversions to Christianity are examined.
