About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1914, this volume was written as an attempt to summarize the history of ancient India, and to make it intelligible to readers with an interest in modern India. Covering the period between the date of the Rig-veda (around 1200 BC) and the first century AD, the text provides a highly readable narrative containing key events and figures, together with numerous illustrative figures. A short bibliography and chronological table are included at the end of the book. This work will be of value and interest to both historians and historiographers.
