      Nice book.

      Apparently, i don't know much about ancient India, i understood that after reading the book.
      The book is a nice read- with simple, fluid language. Though, sometimes you might feel the view is little bit critical, but that depends on your point of view. We like our glorious past, this book may create doubts about that. Overall, a factual, compact book.

      A true reference book!

      I bought this book because it is a reference book for those who study History at U of Mumbai.
      I must say, this book serves the purpose perfectly. The best thing about this book is that there are interactive maps, which provide us more information and help us get an idea how big the particular empire was, etc.

      I would really recommend this to all the history students and others as well who want to know about the Ancient Indian History in detail.

      Utter nonsense

      Read this book, found some utter non-sense Jha writes on veda..(and Jha many a times points to it that this would not be liked by Hindu forces, in order to justify his stand That's the only merit of his work he seems to claim). I found it disappointing that people who write such history are so acclaimed. The biggest drawback in reading such historians and most of them in India is that they write on Ancient Indian without knowing a, b, c of sanskrit language. I dont know how they get to know w...
