To explore a regional identity is to explore an idea. All human collectivities have a sense of place, a subjective connection to their environment. Through custom, culture and myth, the area of northwestern India known as Rajasthan has developed a distinctive identity which can be defined and iluminated. The essays in this pioneering two-volume work explore some of the many facets of this changing yet enduring identity. Regions are grounded in objective realities, but they are also subjective constructs. To address both perspectives, The Idea of Rajasthan is published in two complementary volumes. The first Constructions looks at how Rajasthanis and outsiders have created and defined Rajasthan. "Identity as Process" contains essays which consider how a regional identity is created and reinforced. "Art as Communication" discusses how arts such as music, mime, painting and sculpture represent and reflect regional cultural identity. The second volume, Institutions, alalyzes structures, adaptations, arrangements, and ways of life and thought that have characterized and shaped the lives of Rajasthanis. "Locales and Social Structures" contributes essays on grass-roots economic, social and political adaptations to Rajasthan's limited-resource environment and the legacy of the princely states. In "Power and hegemony," the focus is on dimensions of the Rajputs' historic dominance of the region.
