EARLY INDIA: FROM THE ORIGINS TO AD1300
Published by University of California Press. 1st. 2002
Nearly fine condition in a nearly fine dustwrapper. Early India represents a complete rewriting by Romila Thapar of her classic work, A History of India, thirty-five years after it was first published. Thousands of years of history, tracing India's evolution before contact with modern Europe was established: its prehistoic beginnings; the great cities of Indus civilization, the emergence of mighty dynasties, the teachings of Buddha; the creation or heroic epics; and the creation of state and regional cultures. Red cloth boards, gilt title to spine.
Tiny nick to base of spine else a fine, clean copy. Pictorial dustwrapper is just lightly scuffed.
