What Our Customers Say...

Description

Illustrated, With Dustwrapper

The second impression of third revised edition of this work in the publisher's original cloth binding, with the original price-clipped dust wrapper.

A sweeping study of the history and culture of India, before the Muslim religion became widespread, by the notable historian, Indologist and author Arthur Llewellyn Basham (1914-1986). Illustrated with a colour frontispiece and numerous photographic plates, line drawings and maps.

Basham's work was aimed at a Western audience and attempted to correct the negative stereotypes of India created by previous historians such as Thomas Babington Macaulay.
