Description

About the Book

This is a strikingly original work, the first real cultural history of India. The main features of the Indian character are traced back into remote antiquity as the natural outgrowth of a historical process. Did the change from food gathering and the pastoral life to agriculture make new religions necessary? Why did the Indus cities vanish with hardly a trace and leave no memory? Find out the answers in this insightful book.

About the Author

D D KOSAMBI (1907 - 1966) was best known as a mathematician, but was endowed with a truly Renaissance versatility. His formula for chromosome distance occupies a central place in classical genetics. His work on coins makes the numismatics of hoards into an exact science. An unrivalled collection of microliths, the discovery of Brahmi inscription at Karle, and of a remarkable number of archaeology. His editions of the poetry of Bhratrihari and of the oldest known Sanskrit anthology are land-marks in Indian text-criticism.

Anyone genuinely interested in Indian history would not be unfamiliar with the work of D D Kosambi. He was undoubtedly a path-breaking researcher and writer. Even after decades, his work remains highly relevant. So, I shall not say much about the book but focus on the work as has been published by Vikas Publishing. I think this is a great book which has been marred by the poor publishing by Vikas. The cover is unattractive. The paper quality is below average. the printing is not good quality and some pages are misaligned. The illustrations are in BW and quite unclear or useless. All in all, I would say it is a rather shoddy publication. If you can find or afford a better edition, I would suggest anyone to go for that. If however, you cannot find a better edition or cannot afford it, this on is strictly OK if you are willing to put up with the shoddy quality of publication and focus only on the content matter. The service by Infibeam was good. I got a good discount and the book was delivered on time, well packed and in brand-new condition.
