  1. Prof Upinder Singh, Asoka University

    For a better understanding of ancient Indian history, there is a need to further explore the material and the ideational. It is also necessary to move beyond the sub-continental frame to reconstruct the processes of cultural transmission and transformation; the travels of ideas; the complexities of religious networks; and the role of trade, war and diplomacy . . . This book explores some of these issues.
