After more than twenty years in print, A New History of India continues to be the most readable and popular one-volume history of India currently available. Wolpert has condensed over 4,000 years of India's continuity and development into a graceful and engaging text. He discusses modern India's rapidly growing population and even more rapidly expanding industry and economy, and also considers the prospects for India's future. Wolpert strives to record India's history both fairly and truthfully, portraying with clarity and intensity the brightest achievements of Indian civilization and the dark depths of its persistent socio-sexual inequities and its economic and political corruption. Now in its sixth edition, this book has been thoroughly revised and updated to include a new preface and a new final chapter reflecting the significant social, political, and economic issues that have arisen since 1997. A New History of India remains the most illuminating account of India, bringing students up-to-date on the current problems India faces. It is an essential text for courses that focus on the history of India and an ideal book for readers interested in exploring India's past, present, and future.
