As an academic who has spent many years learning about the different tribes of the Indian subcontinent, I believe this book to be very misleading and based on very poor-research. This book is incomplete and historically inaccurate, it contradicts many established academically verified historical facts.

I read this book just cause of the fact it has been mentioned as reference in Yadav wikipedia page.The whole this is wholy crap.This bitch susan is a foreigner and knows nothing about the holy clan Yadav.Had she read Bhagwad gita she would have known about yadav.This book is just to malign yadav caste because people are jealous of their holy origin and christens want this clan to disappear so that there is only holy blood of jesus.however this stupid woman does not know god is one and he has taken various forms in diff part of the world to remove evils like her.She should be ashamed of herself and her cheap incomplete research. First she should read bhagwat gita, which other caste find its name in bhagwad gita? Its only the holy yadav clan.Since mugal invasion yadav emperors were taken over and slowly with the change in society majority of them took farming...They find mention in OBC cause they were proud of their ancestry and didnt stoop to any level to work for britishers and they did not give more imp to education with changing trend in India.This is how they fought to be included in backward class group to gain advantage.This bool is holy crap. The author has done a lame study and must have met a biased person to come up with this.Her intention is purely to defame great yadavs because it is said that they carry holy blood f god and according to christens jesus is the god and he never married.
