This revised and updated edition includes an Introduction that reflects upon the profound changes in Western interpretations of non-Western societies over the past 35 years since the book was first published in 1977.Readership:Scholars, teachers, and students of medieval India, particularly art history, as well as general readers interested in painting and culture
