Studies in Indian historical geography: from ancient Sarasvati to the Railway Age

Khan, Zahoor Ali

₹ 1495.00

This book deal directly with issues of this nature. But historical geography has a much wider compass, ranging from alterations in river courses to territorial variations in cultural features such as religion and language use or economic phenomena. The author has used cartographic instruments to test existing hypotheses such as the common belief relating to the river Sarasvati or to find answers to questions relating to regional alterations in prices and wages as a result of the construction of the railways. Zahoor Ali Khan provides answers to such queries through maps prepared after an astonishing amount of labour, which the places shown in the maps may not fully indicate.
