The essays centre round 3 significant subject matters: the town of Bombay, Indian politics and society, and Indian historiography. each one manifests Dr Chandavarkar's hallmark historic powers of innovative empirical richness, analytic acuity and expository beauty, and the gathering as an entire will make either an important contribution to the historiography of recent India, and a priceless memorial to an enormous scholar.
