Item Description: Centrum Press, 2011. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. Contents: Preface. 1. The Ancient Indus Civilization. 2. The Features of Indus Civilization. 3. Harappan Architecture and Civil Engineering. 4. Pakistan-Cradle of Civilizations. 5. Aryan Invasion and Fall of the Indus Empire. 6. Indian Economy in Early Ancient Period. Bibliography. Index. The greater Indus region was home to the largest of the four ancient urban civilizations of Egypt, Mesopotamia, South Asia and China. It was not discovered until the 1920ís. Most of its ruins, even its major cities, remain to be excavated. The ancient Indus Civilization script has not been deciphered. Many questions about the Indus people who created this highly complex culture remain unanswered, but other aspects of their society can be answered through various types of archaeological studies. The Indus Valley Civilization (IVC) was a Bronze Age Civilization (3300-1300 BCE; mature period 2600-1900 BCE) which was centred mostly in the western part of the Indian Subcontinent and which flourished around the Indus River basin. Primarily centred along the Indus and the Punjab region, the civilization extended into the Ghaggar-Hakra River valley and the Ganges-Yamuna Doab, encompassing most of what is now Pakistan, as well as extending into the westernmost states of modern-day India, southeastern Afghanistan, and the eastern most part of Balochistan, Iran. The uniqueness of this book hence lies in the authorís way of reconstructing the period under review by delving deep into the geo-political ground of that time of India. Bookseller Inventory # 96670

Contents Preface 1 Shankaracharya 2 Taittiriya Upanishad 3 Advaita Vedanta 4 Ramanuja 5 Madhvacharya 6 Rise of Tamil Bhakti movement 7 Some of famous Nayanar Saints 8 Kalhana 9 Hindu Temple architecture Bibliography IndexMany historians Indian and British have tended to look at South Asian history from the point of view of the north and defined the medieval period mainly in terms of the Muslim conquests and Islamic institutions These did not play a major role however until the 13th century Until the last 25 years those that bothered to talk about the previous seven hundred years between the fall of the Gupta Emperors and 1200 AD saw these centuries as a sort of preparation for the Islamic governments which followed So these years of the early medieval period have been characterized as witnessing the degradation of the culture of the classical Gupta period and its political order This northern-centred view dismisses the parts of the subcontinent in the south where Islamic states never established stable governments But this view was oriented in the end more toward justifying or condemning British Rule than it was in exploring the actual historical experience of South Asia between 500 AD and 1200 AD The focus here is on two major characteristics of the early medieval period the structure and scale of the political forms which evolved and the gradual development of regional cultures and economies The uniqueness of this book hence lies in the authors way of reconstructing the period under review by delving deep into the geo-political ground of that time of India jacket 296 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 96678
