A History of India
This fourth edition of A History of India presents the grand sweep of Indian history from antiquity to the present in a compact and readable survey.

Providing an authoritative and detailed account, Hermann Kulke and Dietmar Rothermund emphasize and analyze the structural pattern of Indian history.

This is fake book... does not represent the history of India. Writing about India without knowing anything about the Indian History, langauge and culture is mere a mistake.
Review: A History of IndiaUser Review - Roger Wood - Goodreads
During 2009, my subject of study for the year was India - it's culture, history, economy. Please see link for more: http://bit.ly/RCWstuff This book was dry and flat, but extremely informative and useful. I'd recommend it to anyone look to have a very good summary of this amazing country.
