Building on the pioneering work of scholars such as Cynthia Talbot and Brajadulal Chattopadhyaya, these chapters seek to understand identity perception through romances, historical documents, ballads and historical epies, inscriptions and even architecture.

The chapters in this volume urge readers to reconsider the simple and rigid applicatin of categories such as Hindu and Muslim when studying South Asias medieval and early modern past. It only by doing this that we can understand the past and, perhapys, help prevent the dangerous rewriting of Indian history.
