Description
About the Book

This collection of thirteen articles from the Journal of the Sind Historical Society concentrates on precolonial and colonial Sind. These articles reveal much about Sindh's past and historically showcase the region's broad socio-cultural spectrum. Scholarship frequently overlooks the subjects and people in this collection. In part, this oversight is due to so few libraries (both in Pakistan and around the world) having copies of the Journal of the Sind Historical Society. There are no reprints of these articles in any other book, nor has anyone reprinted them in their entirety since the 1930s and 1940s. The articles in this book not only deepen knowledge about Sindh but also the history of Pakistan and the diversity of its people. They represent, like most research printed in the Journal of the Sind Historical Society, 'forgotten' chapters in both Sindhi and Pakistani history. These chapters celebrate Pakistan's socio-cultural diversity and point toward how the histories of region and nation should be intertwined.

About the Author
Michel Boivin is Director of Research at the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and Co-Director Elect of the Centre for South Asian Studies (CNRS-EHESS). He teaches Historical Anthropology of South Asia in colonial and postcolonial periods at the School of Advanced Studies in Social Sciences (EHESS), with a focus on Sindh.

Matthew A. Cook, PhD (2007) in Socio cultural Anthropology, Columbia University, is Professor of South Asian and Postcolonial Studies at North Carolina Central University. His research focuses on the history and anthropology of South Asia, Sindh and colonialism.

Julien Levesque holds a PhD (2016) in Political Science from Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS), Paris and is currently Head of the Politics and Society Division at the Centre of Social Sciences and History (New Delhi). His doctoral research focused on nationalism and identity construction in Sindh after Pakistan's independence.
