This volume includes essays on a wide range of themes, marked by various distinct approaches to the study of connections between religion and warfare in Indian history from earliest times to the present. Such a collection could possibly cause some consternations, even as editors began with the basic premise that some of the critical questions be discussed as freely as possible, despite constraints of ideological barriers limiting the fields of inquiry.
   Written by a mix of veterans as well as young scholars—Raziuddin Aquil, Richard B. Barnett, C.A. Bayly, Torkel Brekke, Richard M. Eaton, Michael H. Fisher, Pratyay Nath, Kaushik Roy, Arupjyoti Saikia, and Sandhya Sharma—the essays will provoke some debate on what all could possibly be undertaken as legitimate historical exercise and whether it is impossible to write a professional and non-partisan history of such politically sensitive issues as the entanglement of religion and warfare in Indian history and society.
