The Hindu History by Akshoy k. Majumdar forms part of the indispensable canon of works on the chronological growth of Hinduism and the Indian nation.Written in early 20th century, it is a classic which traces the origin and development of Hindustan from 3000 BC to 1200 AD. The book begins with the Aryan invasion of India and takes us on an engaging journey through the rise of new dynasties and kingdoms followed by the advent of foreign rule in India. Religion and Philosophy have always been the guiding force for the Indian multitude. Together they have not only moulded the complex web of the society but also played an indispensable role in nation-building.
