Presented here is a novel approach to understanding the relationship between the past and the present using the unique concept of re-use, wherein elements from the past are strategically adapted into the present, and thus become part of a new modernity. The book uses this method as a heuristic tool for analysing and interpreting cultural and political changes and the transnational flow of ideas, concepts and objects. The chapters apply this concept to South Asia but the concept of re-use and the method of its application are both general and amenable to cross-cultural and comparative analysis. Re-use is a collection of well-researched and lucidly written scholarly articles that apply the concept of re-use to different aspects of cultural, political and material life-from art, architecture and jewellery to religion, statesmen and legislatures. By not treating artistic, political, religious and cultural developments as linear evolutions, this book encourages readers to understand them as a continuous modification of the past and a periodic return to earlier forms. Beautifully illustrated with exquisite images, and containing a scholarly bibliography pointing in the direction of hitherto unexplored terrain, this new text will be a source of inspiration to the specialist and a source of delight to the general reader.

Growing out of an international workshop organized by the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies in Singapore and the Centre of Asian Studies at the University of Hong Kong, this volume explores material, cultural and imaginative features of the immigrant communities and brings together these two important communities within a comparative framework.

The Journal of Indian Art is still one of the most consulted books on Indian jewellery. It is an authentic source for scholars and collectors who are engaged with traditional Indian jewellery or ancient techniques. The original of Indian Jewellery was edited in 1909 by Thomas Holbein Hendley, comprising Nos. 95-107 of The Journal of Indian Art. The picture plates of this book show native ornaments of British India, demonstrating the vast of Indian jewellery in the eight provinces at the end of the nineteenth century. Examples of the jewellery of past civilizations of Asia and Europe were added for consideration of the history and development of the different styles. The book s illustrations and descriptions of old Indian royal and peasant ornaments are of unaltered interest now, one hundred years later. During this past period, new developments and designs of jewellery have come up, frequently based on the old traditions. The centenary reprint edition of Indian Jewellery was therefore supplemented with photographs of recent Indian jewellery, as an attempt to present revival pieces that are still en vogue after one hundred years, as well as to show examples of new developments which were manufactures after the old style, yet with modifications and adaptations, answering to a modernized taste and demand.
