This review is from: A New History of India (Paperback)
A New History of India is an indispensable book for those who want to gain a thorough understanding of Indian history. As an A-Level Indian History Student, I find it useful particularly its description of modern Indian History. It also contains insightful opinions over each contentious issues, especially the profound impact of 2 world wars and the repercussion of partition, which inspire me a lot.
For those who would like to obtain lucid description of India, India: A History by John Keay is also an highly recommended book.

This review is from: A New History of India (Paperback)
Stanley Wolpert's New History of India is thoroughly researched and impartial - an essential introduction both to India and to his other more specialist books on the subcontinent and its great figures and moments in history. If I have a criticism, it is only that his style is a touch pedestrian, but the book is readable for all that.
