A readable concise history,
This review is from: India: A History (Paperback)
This is a very approachable complete history of india (2000Bc to Present) and to have a book quite as easy to digest about such a large time scale is a rarity. It is very good for beginners to this subject area and is not limited to just the India's boundaries.
I found some very interesting other books from this one about Sankrit Literature and Alexander the Great - this book also has lots of very nice pictures which effectively divide the book into smaller sections, making it even more easy to handle.
