9780195636444: The Transmission of Knowledge in South Asia: Essays on Education, Religion, History, and Politics (SOAS Studies on South Asia)

What is the motivation behind the transmission of knowledge and ideas in the specific cultural contexts of South Asian societies? These essays look at schools and schooling, the telling of myth, colonial information gathering, and the spread of the 'hindutva' ideology, among other examples. They relate to each other in their theoretical positions, which are discussed in the editor's introduction. The book's importance lies in an attempt to explore common understanding of the social agenda in widely differing contexts.
