Starting with a chapter on the nature and importance of Indian inscriptions, the author has attempted to draw attention to some of the popular notions and theories propounded by the earlier scholars and implicitly followed even today, and argue that they are no longer tenable, or need to be revised.

In particular, the chapters on the language media of Indian inscriptions, palaeographical zonalization of Indian scripts and palaeographical dating of undated inscriptions break new ground, while the last chapter emphasizes as well as illustrates the need for tackling inscriptions from newer angles.
