The role iron technology played in the development of a settled agrarian civilization in India has long been controversially debated. In this volume, B.P. Sahu introduces a selection of seminal essays by leading scholars in the field, including D.D. Kosambi, R.S. Sharma, D.K.Chakrabarti and Shereen Ratnagar. Each thesis is placed in its historical and theoretical context, clarifying the dimensions of this ongoing and tangled debate. Seeking to give a fully comprehensive overview, Sahu also includes a collection of essays offering fresh regional perspectives on Northern and Central India, Kathiawar and Tamil Nadu.

Book Description Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2006. Hardbound. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. The book puts forth selected pieces of writing which highlight the major debates that have emerged around iron and social change in early India. The spread of iron technology, with considerable chronological variation, into the historico-cultural regions has been perceived by a group of historians as an important marker of the transition to full-fledged sedentary agriculture and other constituent elements of the early historical civilization. B.P. Sahu introduces the reader to the various protagonists in the debate and their positions and places them in the context of the historical period. He includes seminal essays by eminent scholars of ancient Indian history such as D.D.Kosambi , R.S.Sharma, D.K.Chakrabarti, and Shereen Ratnagar. The last section includes essays which provide a fresh regional perspective: these look at Northern India, Central India, Kathiawar, and Tamil Nadu respectively. Printed Pages: 272. Size: 14 Cms x 22 Cms. Seller Inventory # 013229
