9780143029892: The Penguin History of Early India: From the Origins to AD 1300

The Penguin History Of Early India From The Origins To AD 1300 gives its readers an exhaustive idea about the history of India, from the time of its formation, through its gradual coalition, to its structure in AD 1300. The account is not a chronological narration of the events that took place to form India, but the narration of the story of India. Romila Thapar s version of the history of India is composed of many stories of the different parts of India which gradually came together to form one great country.

Romila Thapar s The Penguin History Of Early India From The Origins To AD 1300 takes its readers on a journey. The journey begins from the prehistoric era of the Indus Valley Civilization and other such ancient civilizations. It continues through to the emergence of the great empires of the Mauryas, Cholas, and the Guptas. It also talks about the creation of the great epics of The Ramayana and The Mahabharata, and the lives of great scholars and saints who had a huge impact on the life of India and its people such as Gautam Buddha and King Ashoka. The narration of history ends with the year AD 1300, with the reign of Rajendra III, the last Chola King.

The Penguin History Of Early India From The Origins To AD 1300 aims at showing the connections between the social, political, economic and religious aspects of each period. The focus is on tracing the continuities in the history of Early India. Diverse subjects such as religion, art, erotica, language, society are analyzed in conjunction with each other.

This updated edition contains added research on the history of India based on new excavation data, new methods of interpretation of history and changes in academic understanding of the discipline.

Descripción Penguin, New Delhi, India, 2003. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. First Edition. A largely rewritten version of a classic history of early India concerned not only with the past but also with the interaction of the past and the present. Romila Thapar’s Penguin History of Early India brings to life many centuries of the Indian past. Dynastic history provides a chronological frame but the essential thrust of the book is the explanation of the changes in society and economy. The mutation of religious beliefs and practices, the exploration of areas of knowledge in which India excelled, its creative literature, are all woven into a historical context. In this version, the opening chapters explain how the interpretations of early Indian history have changed. Further, although the diversity of sources and their readings are well known, nevertheless, this narrative provides fresh readings and raises new questions. Romila Thapar gives a vivid and nuanced picture of the rich mosaic of varied landscapes, languages, kingdoms and beliefs, and the interaction between these that went into the making of a remarkable civilization. Printed Pages: 592. Size: 14 Cms x 22 Cms. Nº de ref. de la librería 016460
