India: A History from the Earliest Civilisations to the Boom of the Twenty-First Century
This definitive work combines narrative pace and skill with social, economic and cultural analysis.
Older, richer and more distinctive than almost any other, India's culture furnishes all that the historian could wish for in the way of continuity and diversity. The peoples of the Indian subcontinent, while sharing a common history and culture, are not now, and never have been, a single unitary state; the book accommodates Pakistan and Bangladesh, as well as other embryonic nation states like the Sikh Punjab, Muslim Kashmir and Assam. In this brilliant new edition, John Keay continues the narrative of India's history - covering events from partition to the present day and examining the very different fortunes of the three successor states: Pakistan, Bangladesh and the Republic of India.
This is a history of a country set to be a definitive influence on the future of world economics, politics and culture.
