Abstract:

"This work examines how a Jat identity was formed and shaped in rural southeast Punjab (present-day Haryana), and the historical phases through which it evolved. The author analyses popular religious traditions, qaumi narratives and the different political strands that went into the making of Jat identity. Whereas most previous works have concentrated on the economic or high political history of this region, this study presents a 'history from within' of Jat cultivators." "This volume will be of interest to historians, sociologists, political scientists and those interested in culture studies."--Jacket.
