This lavishly illustrated book presents a coherent and fascinating account of the Indus Valley civilization that will appeal to specialists and non-specialists alike. Kenoyer draws on the latest archaeological information from Harappa, Mohenjodaro, Dholavira, and other major sites as well as on his considerable knowledge of South Asian societies and ancient technologies. He addresses such enduring topics as the nature and role of the Indus writing system, the Indus religino as evidenced through sculpture and architecture, the political organization of Indus city-states, long-distance trade and the importance of merchants in Indus society, and the daily life of the diverse inhabitants of the cities, towns, and villages of the region.

Jonathan Mark Kenoyer, Associate Professor in Anthropology, teaches archaeology and ancient technology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.Review:
Kenoyer's discussion of the Indus Valley script is balanced and unspeculative. Because of his even-handed approach , Kenoyer suceeds very well in his objectives of providing an introductory text on the Indus Valley civilisation. The overall quality of the illustrations is very high, and the
relatively low cost of the book should ensure a wide readership. - Richard Fynes - International Journal of Punjab Studies (UK)
