Description

This slim volume gives an account of India’s history prior to ad 1206, the founding of the Sultanate of Delhi. The chapters are short and crisp and offer information on the Age of the Itihasas, the Dravidians, the post-Vedic ages, Mahavira and Gautama Buddha, foreign invasions into India, visit of Chinese scholar Hiuen Tsang, Rajput ascendancy, Muslim conquests, the Punjab occupation and the effect of Muslim invasions. One point to which the reader`s attention is drawn is that the author dares to question whether the Aryans ever came to India as a conquering race from a foreign country.
