Synopsis: The history of India is the engrossing story of an ancient civilization, reborn as a modern nation. More a continent than a single nation, India is home to over one-fifth of humanity, yet it remains a mystery to most non-Indians, barely appreciated and poorly understood. Stanley Wolpert's third edition of India provides a much-needed, concise overview of Indian history and culture. His new preface brings the book up to date, discussing the most recent national elections, the economic effects of the new globalization, and the consequences of joining the nuclear arms race.

From the Inside Flap: "To all of us who delightedly and sometimes repetitively call ourselves Old India hands, Stanley Wolpert is the acknowledged authority. This book tells why. Indian history, art, culture, and contemporary politics are here in accurate, wide-ranging, and lucid prose." John Kenneth Galbraith

PRAISE FOR THE PREVIOUS EDITION:

Wolpert understands India . Fluent, wide-ranging and often wise, this volume is a useful addition to a shelf of books on India.” Shashi Tharoor, Washington Post Book World

A superb distillation of a lifetime’s learning by UCLA’s great historian of India. Refreshingly concrete and detailed, [and] vibrantly written, Wolpert’s overview repeatedly succeeds at explaining a culture that gave us little things like the decimal system, chess, cotton cloth, meditation, and two religions called Buddhism and Hinduism.” Philadelphia Inquirer

If one were to read a single book about India in a lifetime, this should be it.” Library Journal
