This book originally published in 1925, deals with the Mauryan Period. It is but a preliminary part of a venture which had in view a History of Bengal from the early age, i.e. from the establishment of the Mauryan Empire, the earliest event in the history of Bengal to which an approximate date can be assigned, up to the first Muslim invasion. Presidency of Bengal at that time when this book was being written, covered most of North India including United Provinces of Agra and Oudh, the Panjab and the NWFP as also Bihar and Orissa. However, due to unexpected death of the author, project could not be completed.
