This collection of lectures attempts to identify social, political and religious processes that could account for the end of the Indus Valley civilization.
The book suggests interesting alternatives to the Holocaust theories of civilization collapse. It places the Indus Valley civilization in a wider geographical setting to explore not just internal factors but also those operating within the Bronze Age world at large.An appendix gives a brief survey of the post Harappan culture, for easy reference for researchers. The text is illustrated with diagrams, maps and photographs.
