Summary Of The Book
Written by an expert on the ancient history of India, the book provides a comprehensive overview of India through ancient and early medieval times. It explores the time period from the Stone Age to the 12th century AD, taking into consideration both archaeological findings, as well as, literary descriptions of those times. It begins by exploring the most ancient times of Palaeolithic and Mesolithic ages, eventually progressing to the Harappan civilization and then to the Magadha and Mauryan empire of early medieval times.
Key socio-cultural issues of each era have been discussed in great detail and all prevalent points of views are examined on significant contentious issues. The descriptions are accompanied with beautiful colour pictures of archaeological findings, historical maps, and drawings. Though written essentially for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in history, the book would be found equally stimulating by the general reader interested in learning about ancient Indian history.
