Lives of Indian Images
Richard H. Davis

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This is imaginative and innovative scholarship that jumps over the walls between religious studies, art history, and cultural criticism. The case studies of images are wide-ranging, from temple lootings in medieval wars and representations of Indo-Muslim iconoclasm, to colonial recodings, modern commodifications, and revisions on the part of contemporary India's religious right. Davis walks the reader through great historical periods pointing out everywhere the situated practices by which the meanings of images are constantly being remade."--Sheldon Pollock, University of Chicago
