This book presents an overview of the protracted past of the subcontinent from the earliest times to c. AD 1300. It traces the principal features in political, socio-economic and cultural history (including religious life and art activities) of the subcontinent by accommodating salient researches in early Indian history. A major feature of this book is its analyses of changes in socio-economic, political and cultural life beyond dynastic shifts. It familiarizes readers with current issues, debates and trends in early Indian historiography, and tries to acquaint readers with diverse types of primary sources (field archaeological, epigraphic, numismatic, textual – both normative and descriptive – and art-historical materials) which offer multiple images and perspectives of the period under discussion. In addition to an exhaustive bibliography that will encourage interested readers to further studies, the book also offers several illustrations and maps.
