The readings in this series are designed to cover important facets of islam in South Asia, and to enhance our understanding of `Islam Observed` and `Islam Interpreted`. Volume 1 reveals, with the aid of travellers, novelists, missionaries and administrators, how the nation of a distinct and exclusive Muslim Identity came to be invented in the latter part of the nineteenth century. The second half of this volume, based on scholarly writings, provides a corrective to these images and representations.
