This new book represents a complete rewriting of Romila Thapar's hugely successful HISTORY OF INDIA - VOLUME ONE, thirty-four years after it was first published. Incorporating the vast changes in knowledge developed during her lifetime, Thapar tells the extraordinary story of this great civilisation - a civilisation always based on diverse, often warring sources and that left the astounding buildings and beliefs that still fill India. This book is the authoritative history told with style andmeticulous attention to detail by the world's leading authority.

Recensione dell'utente  - benjaminsiegel - LibraryThing

The book is poorly billed as an introductory text, but is a superlative review of early Indian history and historiography. Wish Islam got a bit more billing in the later sections, and the organization is sometimes confusing, but a very good advanced primer, if that's a thing. Leggi recensione completa
