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. The authors examine the major political, economic, social and cultural forces which have shaped the history of the subcontinent. Providing an authoritative and detailed account, Hermann Kulke and Dietmar Rothermund emphasize and analyze the structural pattern of Indian history.

The fourth edition of this highly accessible book brings the history of India up to date to consider, for example, the recent developments in the Kashmir conflict. Along with a new glossary, this edition also includes expanded discussions of the Mughal empire and the economic history of India.

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 India

User 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.
