This monumental work is a survey of the history and culture of the Indian sub-continent before the coming of the Muslims. The book has been written to interpret Indian civilization to the Western reader and covers all aspects of Indian life and thought. Dr. Basham writes with admirable clarity. As a sympathetic and intelligent introduction to Indian culture, this book could hardly be bettered.
