Stein and Jan Broek, a colleague from Minnesota, first devised the idea of a historical atlas of South Asia, and enlisted the backing of Charles Leslie Ames to establish a fellowship in historical cartography of the Indian subcontinent. Under the leadership of Joseph E. Schwartzberg, the work on the atlas began in the mid-1960s. Stein was an active advisor on the project, which resulted in the publications of A Historical Atlas of South Asia, published by the University of Chicago Press in 1978.

Stein marshals epigraphic data and raises important questions around caste formation and its role in state formation. p22. The crucial point is that the parts can very often renegotiate their relationship to the whole, retaining aspects of their political autonomy.
