There has in the past been been many historical articles, books written with a western view regarding this subject. It seems the Victorian view is still in vogue. This book, with many references by eminent scholars gives an alternative unbiased view of both Asian and Western history. A very good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ancient World History 30 May 2016
By L. H. Reddy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very attractive cover page. I am totally blown away by the in-depth knowledge of Stephen Knapp on Vedic Culture.
The author has guts to expose the bogus “Aryan Invasion Theory” proposed by the Mux (MAD) Miller in 1800s. During the Bronze Age many people migrated from India and settled in Germany and it’s not the other way. The most advanced civilization and very powerful empires flourished in India while the west and rest of the world including China were still wandering in the woods. The author did a splendid job in explaining the Vedic culture in straight forward and plain words. I highly recommend all the historians to read this book and come up with the real world history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great summary of Indian Vedic Culture 1 Nov. 2012
By hari - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is an eye-opener on Indian Vedic Advancements and its importance/influence on modern world. What I am highly impressed with is the amount of supporting references/details mentioned in this book as it sifts through the immense advancements and contributions of this civilization! Immaculate proofs and evidence are provided to date the important events recorded in this civilization's history. Being from India, I am only saddened that I never read such history in my school years about Indian Civilization (perhaps due to variety of speculations that have been refuted only in recent times with series of major archeological discoveries)!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating history 6 Mar. 2013
By pdk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Like Knapp's other books, it is very well referenced and detailed. He covers many topics of ancient India's acheivements in the arts, sciences, agriculture, manufacturing, architecture, and especially interesting to me, governance; and other aspects as well. My only complaint is that the book is too short! I wish he had gone a bit more in depth, but he covered so many topics the book would have had to be a few hundred more pages.

India's real history has been hidden - for some reason the ancient histories of Egypt and other civilizations are well known; but India's secrets have not been so. It's time that changes, as it is now becoming clear that advanced civilizations in India pre-dated others all over the world. In fact, the more they dig, the more ancient finds they make. Much of what is taught as history is but bits and pieces, and history books will need to be re-written to include the ancient past of greater India.

A wealth of fascinating information.
Well written and thoroughly documented trip through man's early history. I now look at India with a much greater respect. This where much of our culture, math, science and religion began.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exposing misread history 25 Aug. 2013
By Jayana Clerk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Stephen Knapp's findings compels one to look at history afresh. It is time to reexamine old information with neutral perspective, New awareness invariably requires a revision of old theories.
