A pioneering and comprehensive study of the historical imagination in Kashmir, this book explores the conversations between the ideas of Kashmir and the ideas of history taking place within Kashmir's multilingual historical tradition. Offering a historically grounded reflection on the memories, narrative practices, and institutional contexts that have informed, and continue to inform, imaginings of Kashmir and its past, Kashmir's Contested Pasts suggests new ways of understanding the debates over history, territory, identity, and sovereignty that shape contemporary South Asia.
