Description

Indian History is an ideal read for those looking to gain deeper insight into the history of the nation, right from the ancient times, moving on to medieval and modern history.

Summary Of The Book

Indian History is an ideal study manual for students appearing for competitive or civil service examinations. It is systematically divided into three sections and every section features a chronological chart at the beginning. This chart shows the order and sequence of events, allowing students to take a quick glimpse of it.

The first part of the book concentrates on ancient history. It talks about the Indus valley civilization and the Vedic society. The Mauryan era covers Chandragupta and Asoka and also focuses on the rise of Jainism and Buddhism in India. This section even covers the Guptas and their successors.

The next section focuses on medieval history and covers topics like the Mughal empire, Shivaji’s rule and reign, and more. It covers the various dynasties that came to power in India, like the Cholas, Rajaputras, Lodis, and the Vijaynagar empire. With the Sultans' rule, an Indo-Persian culture flourished during this period.

The final section of the book is dedicated to modern history. It deals with the rise of Gandhi, the formation of the Indian National Congress, and the struggle for independence. Readers also learn of the British impact on the Indian economy. The various civil and national movements that erupted out of national consciousness are depicted. India's conflict with China over border control has also explained.

Indian History also contains model papers for students to practise and revise what they have learnt and test their knowledge. Certain maps of relevance are also featured in this book, to make identification of historical places easy. It even features a table that denotes the genealogy of famous historical personalities.

best for beginners

1. lucid format of writing ( info on a topic is all divided as subtopics which is good rather than reading everything as one )
2.covers entire syllabus
3.mcq's after each unit
4. practice tests at last of book(13)
5. flowcharts of kingdoms in the front part of the book
6.provides all the info about a topic up to the required extent
7.the only thing required is more maps at the same time there are only
8.few tabulated representations of information
book best (on others*)
* as per my opin...

Good but not the best !

Though the book provides a comprehensive overview of Indian history , the approach is more factual without an analytical background. Majumdar's An Advanced History of India is a better book in terms of in-depth analysis of events.

Nice

Poor content but good stock of MCQs at the end of each chapter. But plz don't use this as your text book. There are much better books available in the market. U can use old NCERTS. Thanks to flipkart for its as usual swift delivery.

Good book for systematic study

The approach used in the book makes it very easy to get hold of important concepts. It would be better for beginners to start with Tata Mc Graw HIll General Studies book for gettingan initial idea before jumping into this one.

needs improvement

the book is very detailed and analytical for ancient India. Ok for medieval period. But the modern section require major revision, modification and most importantly addition. many areas are not adequately dealt with or are simply ignored. it seems the author may have become tired by the time he reached the modern section and just wanted to finish the book in a hurry!
