This collection showcases an in-depth understanding of social flux and cultural turmoil in contemporary north India. The author presents an intensive case study of Haryana, spanning the mid-nineteenth and twenty-first century. In doing so, she explores its politics, economy, and society with special emphasis on caste and gender. Divided into two sections-colonial and post-colonial-the essays critically examine the complex relationship of the colonial past with the present. Mapping significant social processes and state policies, the volume provides an insight into one of the wealthiest regions in India and why it continues to be regressive even in the twenty-first century.
