This volume, written by a small number of scholars on colonial and medieval Indian history, ethnohistory and the new military history of South Asia, forms a tribute to one of the leading scholars in the field of Indian history, Professor Dirk Kolff. Focusing on wider geographical as well as on more specific social and military aspects, the first section deals with issues of Islamic and European expansion in South Asia. The second section examines specific medieval topics such as military service and slavery, legitimacy and religious devotion. The third section represents Kolff's interest in colonial history and his excursions into the realms of subaltern and cultural studies.
