The use of scienti¬c methodology, modern techniques of interpretation, and selection and analysis of basic problems make An Introduction to the Study of Indian History a vivid and absorbing read.
The author has thrown open new ¬elds for research through this book, which serves as a critical guide to scienti¬c historical thought. It helps the reader gain profound insight into the past by examining monuments, customs and surviving records. At the same time, the present is shown to be the inevitable result of a steady historical development. Complete grasp of the material and mastery of detail shown in the survey of the development from a pre-historic tribal society to the present machine-age make this volume a unique contribution to contemporary historiography.
This book is the culmination of patient research and mature re¬ection of a profoundly original mind and has earned universal recognition and honour over the last few decades.
