Islam and Healing by Seema Alavi

Book Description

Traces the Islamic healing tradition's interaction with Indian society and politics as these evolved in tandem from 1600 to 1900, and demonstrates how an in-house struggle for hegemony can be as potent as external power in defining medical, social and national modernity. A pioneering work on the social and medical history of Indian Islam.

Muslim Cosmopolitanism in the Age of Empire by Seema Alavi Muslim Cosmopolitanism in the Age of Empire, Hardback (April 2015)

Seema Alavi challenges the idea that all pan-Islamic configurations are anti-Western or pro-Caliphate. A pan-Islamic intellectual network at the cusp of the British and Ottoman empires became the basis of a global Muslim sensibility--a political and cultural affiliation that competes with ideas of nationhood today as it did in the last century.

Eighteenth Century in India by Seema Alavi Eighteenth Century in India, Paperback (September 2007)

Part of the prestigious Debates in Indian History and Society series, this volume presents the key argument of the debates, along with a selection of writings that made pioneering interventions in the study of the 18th century in Indian history.
