The present work throws light on many intriguing aspects of the history and culture of India, which have not received comprehensive treatment at the hands of the scholars so far. They deal with political, socio-economic architecture relative to different periods of our history. Some of the chapters beyond the frontiers of India and throw altogether a new light on some of the obscure problems regarding the origin and establishment of Indian settlements in Cambodia, Siam and other countries of South- East Asia about seventeen hundred years ago.

The book for the first time tackles some of the very complicated problems of Indian history from every conceivable angle, and will serve as a guideline both for the post-graduate scholars and the advanced researchers in the field.

A thoroughly original and documented work, the account is so graphic and scintillating and the style so penetrating that at times the reader would feel that he is reading a book on literature rather than on history. A very difficult task has been accomplished with quite ease and candour and there are hardly a few books like this on Indian history, which are so interesting and absorbing.
