Page vii - The general aim of the authors has been to take full advantage of the knowledge and experience embodied in the various volumes of the Cambridge History of India, but to reserve to themselves complete liberty of judgment. The present volume is far from being a mere resume of the larger work, and it is hoped that it will provide in a compact form that survey of Indian history as a whole which has long been sorely needed and which no existing volume satisfactorily supplies.
