A History of India explores the principal themes that unify Indian history and offers the reader a sophisticated and accessible view of India’s dynamics from ancient times, the Mughal Empire, and the British Raj through post-1947 India. The book examines Indian politics, religious beliefs, caste, environment, nationalism, colonialism, and gender, among other issues. It also discusses long-term economic development, the impact of global trade, and the origins of rural poverty. Peter Robb’s clear, fluent narrative explores the interplay between India’s empires, regions of rule, customs, and beliefs, and is an ideal starting point for those with an interest in India’s past and present.
