RAJASTHAN

Rajasthan, which literally means the ‘Lands of Rajas’, is one of the India’s largest states. A study of the Rajasthan state as a whole or in part has so far received little attention from both social and biological scientists. To understand the heterogenous society of the state there is a need for a holistic approach involving environment, socio-cultural factors and biological variables; such is the attempt made in this volume which contains thirty five papers contributed by a cross-section of leading social, biological and environmental scientists and researchers having a first-hand experience of studying Rajasthan.
