About the Book:

The present publication is the outcome of two National Seminars on the Jat History and Culture. The Jats are one of the prominent preasant community among the Indian Population today. The origins and traditions of the Jats go back to dim antiquity. A critical study of the past history of such a community on the basis of all available material cannot fail to be a subject of deep interest and instruction to all Indians.

The Scholars have assembled some of the rarest evidence available in Indian and non-Indian sources and telescoped into a knowledgeable and inspiringly readable historical analysis. The salient features of this publication are:
1. Clan structure of the Jats, mobility and their early settlements and diffusion to other parts of North-West India in ancient period.
2. Geographical spread of Jat settlements and migrations within and outside India in early medieval period.
3. Crystalization of the Jats as Zamindars and dominant peasant community, nature of Jat uprising and the process of Jat state formation.
4. social and political awakening and Jat peasant movements in modern period.
5. Aspects of social, economic and cultural life of the Jat community.
