About the book:

Much can be learnt from India's rich systems of harvesting and distributing rainwater and groundwater through a variety of architecture, some of which are engineering and aesthetic marvels. These structures determined where cities would flourish as well as routes ancient caravans would take. They fed off and into migration networks, creating a holistic interconnection between town, trade and countryside. The essays here, written by leading specialists from around the world, adopt an interdisciplinary approach to the subject, bringing together older research and new findings. They look at the structural and aesthetic figuration of water and waterscapes and reveal how these fit within a larger cultural and spiritual worldview. There are also larger questions addressed in this volume: How are the water histories written, how is water engineered by the state, and how are the political implications of water spaces perceived?
