Summary note:
'Boundaries, Dynamics and Construction of Traditions in South Asia' explores the dynamic constructions and applications of the concept of 'tradition' that occurred within the South Asian context during the ancient and pre-colonial periods. This collection of essays features a significant selection of the specialized fields of knowledge that have shaped classical South Asian intellectual history, and the aim of this volume is to offer a stimulating anthology of papers on the different and complex processes employed during the 'invention', construction, preservation and renewal of a given tradit.
