Description:

The concept of a world-community where a nation's interest is to be subordinated to the general welfare of the mankind has, of late, been driven home by the UNO. It may be puzzling novelty to pronounce that this gospel of the UNO has been a time-honoured facet of India's foreign policy in the distant past. Thus while the west stood for "my country, right or wrong." India forged ahead to harness permanent benefits for the universe. No wonder, the umbrella of Indian cultural influence got inside it far-flung lands and islands both in the east and the west that came to be rightly named "Greater India." India has been the king-pin in this cultural knot. A large number of standard books in French and Dutch languages held the field to begin with. Works in English came rather late. There has always been the need for a quick survey of the entire subject in a brief compass and within an easy reach. The present study is rather a gamut that couches the entire field and material in a systematic, easy and balanced historical narration to cater to the needs of the students and the general readers alike. Printed Pages: 218. Size: 15 Cms x 22.5 Cms. Bookseller Inventory #

About this title:

Synopsis: Written by a highly regarded scholar in the field, this is the first published study on the Greek kingdoms of Bactria and India that treats them as Hellenistic states. The book begins with an overview of the Seleucid settlement, providing a background to the relations between Greeks and Asiatics after the death of Alexander the Great. Covering the period from 206 to 145 BCE, the book analyses the reigns of Euthydemus I, Demetrius I and Menander I, and explains how they accomplished Alexander's dream of co-operation instead of domination in the eastern provinces. Tarn's work examines this little-discussed topic and presents it to the reader in a clear and accessible style, making this a great scholarly contribution that remains unsurpassed in breadth and depth. The second edition from 1966 (reissued here) includes an Addendum explaining the further discoveries since the work was first published in 1951.

Book Description: The second edition (1966) of the first published work on the Greek kingdoms of Bactria and India to treat them as Hellenistic states. Beginning with an overview of the Seleucid settlement after the death of Alexander the Great, it covers the years between 206 and 145 BCE.

Book Description Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 1980. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. The history of the Euthydemids, the fifth of the Hellenistic dynasties, and of the far Eastern division of Alexander`s Empire which they ruled, has hitherto been written only by Indian historians as a part of the history of Iran and of Northern India. But it is really a part of the history of Hellenism, and any study of the Hellenistic states with the Farther East omitted is a mutilated history; for the Euthydemids, both in the extent of their rule and in what they tried to do, were vastly more important than the Attalids, who merely from having been the proteges successively of Egypt and of Rome, have received more attention. The present book is the story, seen from the Greek point of view, of Greek rule in Eastern Iran and Northern India; it recovers what can be recovered of the history of a lost dynasty and. of a remarkable political experiment. In this Second Edition the author has added a body of notes and Addenda, some of which are revisions of the text, in order to indicate the advance of knowledge since 1938. Printed Pages: 584.
