Alian Danielou approaches the history of India through theenduring institutions of its culture that have remained constant, despite theephemeral historical events that have shaped its destiny. His synthesis andnarration create a thoroughly engaging and readable journey through time, with alevel of detail and comprehensiveness that is truly a marvel. Because of the continuity ofits civilization, its unique social system, and the tremendous diversity ofcultures, races, languages and religions that exist in its vast territory, Indiais like a history museum. Its diverse groups have maintained their separate identities,never fully supplanting the culture and knowledge of their predecessors. Thus,the author's examination of India reveals not only the diversity, historicalevents and trends of that country, but also the history of all mankind. In this history of India we learn from whence we came; what we have discoveredover the years in the field of science, arts, technology, social structures,religious, and philosophical concepts; and what the future may hold for us.
