M.E. Sharpe, Oct 3, 2000 - History
0 Reviews
Now revised and updated to encompass developments through the end of the twentieth century, this balanced and highly readable work provides a revealing perspective on India's complex history and society. The author views the development of Indian civilization in terms of the socio-religious conflicts and traditions (Hinduism vs. Islam) through time, and their impact on political culture. He clearly demonstrates how India's past lives on into the present, and how the complex interaction among the forces of imperialism, tradition, and modernity have shaped, and are shaping, India today.
