Product Description

Review

Pithy, admirable ... a most refreshing resumé. --The Times Literary Supplement

A fascinating guide to an emerging nation. --Good Book Guide

Writing an accessible and coherent history of India is an ambitious task. Andrew Robinson meets the challenge successfully ... the author's many-sided engagement with the subcontinent ... makes this book more readable than the course texts lately produced by professional historians. --History Today

I am impressed by the lucidity of the author ... a very good attempt to encompass the long history of India within 250 pages. --Asian Voice

About the Author

Andrew Robinson has published nine books about India. His definitive study of Rabindranath Tagore was described by The New Yorker as a "superb biography." He lives in London.

While a complicated and uncertain history cannot be outlined simply, this book fails to to give the reader a clear "concensus" outline that the various uncertainties can be ordered around.
