Editorial Reviews

Review

The strength of this publication clearly lies in the thoroughly researched and excellent archival material. --Social Anthropology

This is a welcome social anthropological study of kingship without kings in today's Rajastan, India, conducted by an observant woman and anthropologist on a subject clearly male- run and controlled...a welcome substantive ethnography on the intriguing and enduring lore of the Indian maharajas. --Ethnos

As contemporary South Asia globalises and glocalises, fine-tuning its identity, scholars increasingly acknowledge that 'tradition remains a part of the present' Marzia Balzani's study makes a rich contribution to this debate through an ethnographic lens focused on Rajasthan's tourism-savvy royals in Jodhpur. ...The ethnographic analysis of Indian kingship is embellished with useful methodological comments. Balzani evidently collected much more material than could be incorporated. What is included holds together well, and demonstrates the emergence of new royal customs and constantly contested rituals through five interconnected case studies. These also elucidate the concept of the modern Indian state, a much-neglected topic compared with ancient Indian kingship. ...The book is meticulously referenced and indexed, and contains an excellent detailed glossary and bibliography. --Contemporary South Asia
