About the Book-

Ancient Indian history has always been mystical; more so a virtual utopia for historians and researchers. This scholarly text narrates the ancient Indian history from the genesis of civilisations to the early medieval ages. It examines the sources, chronology of civilisations and authoritatively details the facts, feats, triumphs and religious crusades of the period. It unveils the rich cultural, religious and social diversity that is uniquely and peculiarly Indian. The book is of immense use to students of arts and law courses as well as for candidates preparing for various competitive examinations.

Salient Features-

• Balanced account of historical transition from ancient to early medieval
• Insightful interpretation of evidential sources, theory and disputations
• Interesting exposition of specific cultures and political, social, cultural, linguistic and economic developments
