Written over a period of two decades, these Essays present an important part of the work of Dr. Lath after his, A Study of Dattilam, published in 1978 and now considered a land-mark in musicology. Lath has since widened his interests and .the essays here cover a Large range of subjects, extending beyond Music into Dance and theatre, on which he has written with equal theoretical sensitivity and historical insight. Moreover, as the reader will discover, the range of his concerns has not only widened but also deepened. He asks himself questions that lead beyond the narrow confines of descriptive Musicology into thought in general. This expansion of the field, however, remains true to the spirit of Indian musicology, which, unlike many other disciplines remains Indian. Lath's own thinking is creatively rooted in Indian ideas.
