An Introduction to the Study of Indian History 2nd Edition (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.213

An Introduction to the Study of Indian History is a pioneering work by D. D. Kosambi, which provides deep insights and radical introductions to Indian history like never before.

Summary of the Book

In An Introduction to the Study of Indian History, the author uses a scientific methodology and contemporary techniques of interpretation for the readers to understand Indian history in a more systematic manner. This was one of the few books which propagated the fact that Indian history cannot be studied in a manner similar to the study of European history. The author has written the book in his unique style and with generous use of examples, which makes it easy for students to understand the subject. This book is an ideal read for advanced students and scholars of Indian history.

A must Read !!

An extremely important book for any one who wants to study India.DD Kosambi with his unique style and extensive use of examples drawn from his own studies and research explains the Indian history is a very unique way. He sees history not as tales of kings and dates of wars, but from a common man's perspective. A must read!!

Important for students and scholars

a pioneering book that offers an extremely insightful introduction to Indian history which would be valuable to most.however, one should expect from this book any simple chronological description. you should come to this only if you are interested in analytical details. great buy.

scholarly book

Marxist interpretation of history of Aryan coming. Interesting to know how trading is an important aspect human civilization.. But he has not much touched upon the history of extreme South and why and how culturally remained same for the past two millennia. It is also not clear from the book when how Aryans came into this part of the country and how much influence they had . there are so many unknown area in tamil Hisotry. I think we still do not know how subalterns lived in Tamil area during the early Christian era . We know about Kalalpirar rule, perhaps who followed Jainism.
