Embattled Identities: Rajput Lineages and the Colonial State in Nineteenth Century North India

Oxford University Press

This study of the encounter between the Rajputs of North India and the British in the nineteenth century focuses on factors such as caste, kinship, and colonial relations. It examines the reconstitution of Rajput identity through property and inheritance strategies, marriage, female infanticide, feuding, banditry, rebellion and collective violence.
