"India: An Illustrated History is a wonderful first step to understanding India and its people." -- Sreenath Sreenivasan, professor, Columbia University School of Journalism; co-founder, South Asian Journalist Association "Using a refreshingly Indian voice, the authors have condensed the history and culture of this fascinating civilization into a lively and informative guide that will be a valuable resource for students and travelers embarking on their exploration of India." -- Meher McArthur, curator, Pacific Asia Museum, Pasadena, California This volume succinctly recounts 45,000 years of Indian history, from the earliest Indus valley settlements to the twentieth-century struggle against British imperial rule, including the challenges facing the country today. Sections on cultural traditions, regional cuisine, dress, and religion bring the varied facets of this nation to life.
