This work puts together into a co-ordinated whole, a synthesis of the original research of numerous authorities.
Indian civilization is notable for its antiquity and continuity. Apart from its own vitality, the continuity of Indian civilization is largely due to its ability to adapt to alien ideas. The story of the interaction of various civilizations from ancient times to the present has been told in bits and pieces in hundreds of works.
India and World Civilization puts these pieces together into a co-ordinated whole - a synthesis of the original research of numerous authorities, including scientists, philosophers, historians, linguists, archaeologist and anthropologists - woven into a wider historical context. Indeed this very synthesis is in itself a highly original work.
It will win the acclamation of scholars throughout the world, and bring you honor in many fields of learning.
