A collaborative ethnography that collects ordinary persons' recollections of everyday life, politics, and the environment in Rajasthan from when the state was a kingdom and since independence.


Ann Grodzins Gold is Professor of Religion and Anthropology at Syracuse University. She is the author of several books, including "Fruitful Journeys: The Ways of Rajasthani Pilgrims."Bhoju Ram Gujar is Headmaster at Government Middle School in Maganpura village, Rajasthan, India, and lives in Ghatiyali, in the former kingdom of Sawar.


"This is an extraordinary history of postcolonial India as told through the lives of peasants and pastoralists, artisans and housewives. Drawing on many years of research, Gold and Gujar explore changing relations between state and subject, changing structures of production and consumption and, most innovatively, changes in the natural world in rural Rajasthan. Their research is rich, their analyses subtle and empathetic, their writing uncommonly evocative. This landmark study is at once a major contribution to environmental history, political anthropology, and folklore."-Ramachandra Guha, author of The Unquiet Woods and Environmentalism: A Global History
