This fresh and up-to-date interpretation of India's rich and extraordinary history, written by a leading authority in the field, explores themes in ancient, medieval and especially modern India. Peter Robb's accessible narrative analyses India's civilizations and its empires through the ages - including the Mughal Empire, the British Raj, and independent India to the present day - as they entangled with regional rule and heterodox cultures.
A History of India
- examines the relationships between politics, religious belief, social order (especially caste), environment and economic change
- assesses, from circa 1860, British colonialism, Indian nationalism and nation-building, popular protest movements, religious revivals, and re-inventions of caste, community and gender
- discusses long-term economic development, the impact of global trade, and the origins of rural poverty
Centred around clearly expressed and well argued topics, issues and explanations, A History of India is the ideal introduction for all those with an interest in the drama and vitality of India's fascinating past.
