About the Book

A concise and engaging textbook that studies the history of ancient India, from 7000 BCE up to the beginning of the Islamic settlement in the subcontinent.

This textbook introduces, in a unique manner, the history and development of the Indian subcontinent through categorical evidence, data and critical assessment of contemporary global happenings. Ancient Indian History offers multiple parallels to students to aid them in visualizing India as a vessel of cultures.  It brings together archaeology, social anthropology, war philosophies, war politics, numismatic evidence, countless modern discoveries and research evidence. This book bases itself on the premise that globalization is not a phenomenon that was initiated in India in the 1990s but something that has existed in this subcontinent for the last 7000 years or more.

The book will prove to be a valuable companion for UG students of history as well as UGC NET and civil service aspirants who want a comprehensive yet compact introduction to the history of ancient India.
