Summary
"This is an outline of Indian civilization, comprehensive in coverage but brief enough to be read in a few sittings. It gives an overview of 5,000 years of history in South Asia, from the beginnings of farming, cities and writing to the present. It gives readers new to the topic a map of the territory and the tools to take on more advanced and specialized readings"--Provided by publisher
