The Hollow Crown

Ethnohistory of an Indian Kingdom
Second Edition
Nicholas B. Dirks
A groundbreaking work that challenged conventional wisdom and set the standard for the study of Indian society


Praise / Awards

  • "Now and then a work of scholarship appears which forces one to take a hard look at the way things are perceived in our discipline. Such a book might break new ground, taking us into hitherto uncharted regions of Indian society; or it might, with penetrating insights, reopen stale debates about the 'big' issues of structure and process; or it might, yet again, challenge existing modes of inquiry. Rarely, however, does one come across a book which does all three. Nicholas Dirks' The Hollow Crown belongs in that exceptional category."
