The concerns, methods, and findings of Indian historiography for the period of direct rule by Crown-in-Parliament experienced fundamental changes after the Second World War, though there are marked continuities in perceptions in some areas. The older tradition, with its emphasis on British policy, remains one of the strands in the post-war historiography of the Raj but this acquired a much greater degree of professionalism. A considerable gap in Indian historiography exists in the study of the internal dynamics of the princely states which covered two-fifths of the Subcontinent's territory. An interesting development in modern Indian historiography has been a growing concern with the history of modern Indian art.
