  • Description
    In an incisive commentary, Arun Shourie highlights the extent to which our history textbooks have been doctored in order to be politically correct. Well researched and highly engaging, this book brings to light the deceptive tricks and specious arguments used by our countrys academicians to further their selfish aims. It also focuses on the shoddy work done by some of the countrys top institutions like the IHRC. Eminent Historians discusses how Indian historians have controlled and misused important institutions like the Indian Council of Historical Research (ICHR), the National Council of Educational Research Training (NCERT) and a large part of academia and the media. Taking on well-known historians like Romila Thapar and Irfan Habib, Shourie argues that Marxist historians have whitewashed the records of rulers like Mahmud of Ghazni and Aurangzeb. With his customary academic rigour and understanding of politics and history, he avers that Marxist historians in India rarely mention important figures of India or of the Indian states and that the standard Soviet work, A History of India (1973), is much more objective and truthful than the history books written by Indian Marxists. Updated with two new chapters which bring to light more recent developments in the field, this is a must read for every Indian who has an interest in the countrys history and a stake in its future.

    Must read to remove the blinds holding back true Indian History

    Must read to remove the blinds holding back true Indian History . It exposes the way in which the truth about India was deliberately distorted by a cult of communist historians inorder to destroy India's ancient heritage and culture . Unfortunately till now nobody had exposed them until Arun Shourie wrote this book .

    Eminent Historians - a must read book for all Indians

    This book shows how a cabal of Marxist historians with collusion of the ruling elite have hijacked key institutions which has allowed them to control the narrative and national discourse. During their reign people like Romila Thapar and Irfan Habib have distorted out history, presented brutal Islamic invaders as egalitarian and basically blamed Hindu's. Like termites these historians have hollowed out our institutions. I have bought copies to gift to friends and family.

    Price

    I always thought the price of the books will be less in flipkart than that of the store. But I could see this book in 399 at Crosswords.

    Solid Job

    Thanks to Mr. Shourie for his meticulous research and knife edge arguments, the book was a mere delight to read. Those who want to know how our so called rational and scientific historians (actually prejudiced apparatchiks) systematically embedded half-truths and false stories to bury the glory of India with a monolithic purpose to denigrate Hinduism and push a past that is far from the reality. The result of their motivated propaganda is that we Indians only know Mughal and Sultanate history...

    One of the Masterpiece by Arun Shourie - Must read book for all which was earlier Unofficially banned by UPA Govt fearing people reaction

    I would like to share one recommendation on this book which I liked on Goodreads :

    By : Anant Singh rated it 5 of 5 stars
    Shelves: indian-non-fiction

    I feel that Mr. Shourie should have been given somehting like BHARAT RATNA for this piece of work , but as its not in my hand i can just say thanks to Mr. Shourie . Classic work and an eye opener. Some points which touched me :

    1. Reference to the work of ICHR which is like hell and there books are like dust.
    2. The on going tampering of Indi...
