About this Item: Aryan Books International, New Delhi, India, 2004. Hard Cover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. In this work, an attempt has been made to present in a concise form the various and variegated facets of village and village life in Northern India from c. sixth century BC, a great landmark in Indian history in several fields, to c. first century AD, by linking together pieces of evidence culled from literary and archaeological sources. The first chapter deals with time frame, area of study and sources and their relative merit for historical reconstruction. The next two chapters discuss the form and character of villages and their position vis-a-vis towns and cities. The fourth chapter discusses socio-economic stratification, and the fifth, sixth and seventh chapters, aspects of social, economic and religious life, respectively. Administration and taxation forms the subject of the eighth chapter. Then follow two appendices dealing with ownership of land, and grant of agricultural land and villages, respectively, a bibliography and an index. Forty-five line-drawings and twelve photographs have been added which throw light on various aspects of the life of the village folk. Similarities and diversities between villages and towns have been highlighted, and an attempt has been made to distinguish between ideal and real, common and rare, and change and continuity.

The book aims at presenting various facets of Gandhara art in a historical perspective and contains not only the unpublished material but also the analysis and fresh interpretations on the different aspects of Gandhara art including the emergence of the great school of Gandhara sculpture the creation of Buddha image development of Buddhist pantheon interaction with several art styles in the neighbouring countries construction of monasteries and stupas in the vast area termed as greater Gandhara and the delicate issue of Islam and iconoclasm. The documentation and research as a result of archaeological expeditions in several areas during the last two centuries have also been highlighted. The book thus presents important milestones of religious cultural and the artistic journey of Gandhara area now in Pakistan and Afghanistan. 554 pp. Seller Inventory # 26820

About this Item: Aryan Books International, New Delhi, India, 2012. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. The present volume comprising 11 Chapters deals variously with political and economic background and sources; classification and features of edicts; early life and family; conquests and extent of empire; administration; faith in Buddhism; dhamma; religious harmony; society and religions; monuments; and estimate of Asoka. Of five Appendices, the last one deals with the latest discovered Asokan inscription, brought to light by the author. Some points may be highlighted. If Taxila Aramaic inscription was engraved during Asoka's viceroyalty, then Priyadarsi, occurring in it, was not his coronation name. The first five lines of the Panguraria inscription do not refer to Asoka as viceroy on pleasure tour. Identifications and status of Asoka's queens suggested by scholars are rejected, and alternate suggestions offered. The views that Asoka allowed the slaughter of two peacocks and one deer because he was fond of their meat, or because their meat was offered to family deity, have been countered. It is argued with evidence that Chandragupta, and not Bindusara, married a Greek princess. Asoka ruthlessly attacked Kalinga, as in the war of succession, its king had sided with his rival. Asoka has been criticized for granting merely three days for making appeal against death sentence, its review, judgment on the review and conveying the same to the petitioner. The circumstances of the presence of the Separate Rock Edicts at Sannati have been critically examined. Literary and epigraphic evidences show that elephant in Asokan art symbolises Buddha, and so the view that the Dhauli elephant represents Asoka is not correct. Asoka's statement that as a lay Buddhist, after association with samgha, by exerting much he made people extremely pious, clearly shows that the dhamma he propagated was Buddhism, and leaves no scope for debate about it.

About this Item: Agam Kala Prakashan, 2002. Hardcover. Condition: New. Preface Warfare is rooted in human nature and it has been co-existent with the history of mankind. Domination over others, acquisition of territory and booty and defence against invaders has been the causative factors leading to war. Ideological and religious sanction for, and glorification of, killing people, mostly those following different religions or doctrine or belonging to different ethnicity has also been responsible for wars. Increasingly destructive weapons of war have been fabricated through the centuries with the development of higher skills and techniques. Beginning with tools made from stone and wood and thereafter from metals, they culminated in the present array of weapons of mass destruction stockpiled by different nations, with the potentiality of wiping out human civilization from the face of the earth. Fiercest of carnivorous animals like lions and tigers have not killed their own species in such astronomical numbers as humans have done. Wars undoubtedly have wrought great destruction and caused immense human suffering. Nevertheless, they have contributed significantly towards the shaping of the social-cultural and socio-political lives of the people of the world and in the evolution of socio-political formations from the primitive tribal groupings to the wider and more extensive political entitles, viz, the nation states, and the supra nation state in the shape of the United Nations Organization. India has seen many wars and battles-internecine as well as those resulting from foreign invasions-in the course of her long history. The present work deals with important battles and wars from Rigvedic times to 1999. The Battle of Ten Kings (No. 1, below) recounted in the Rigveda is the first recorded battle in Indian history. It was an internecine war between tribal kings of the Rigvedic period which established the hegemony of one king (viz. sudas) over the others. Thereafter, the two wars of epic dimensions that fine an important place in the history of ancient India, are the war fought by Rama against Ravana (No 2, below) as described in great detail in the Ramayana, and the Bharata war fought between the Pandavas and the Kauravas (No. 3, below) which is vividly described in the Mahabharata. These two wars of yore, with their descriptions, intermixed with mythological elements, have sunk deep into collective consciousness of the Indian people. The earlist foreign inroad into Indian was that of the Achaemenians (No. 5, below) in the sixth century BC, which led to the occupation of Sindhu and Gandhara by the invaders. The records f the battles fought are too hazy. Thereafter came the invasion of Alexander, between 327 and 324 BC (No. 6, below), conquering or otherwise subduring states, both monarchical and republican, and bringing in its wake the unification of north-western India, turning them into larger political entities. This incidentally paved the way for Chandragupta Maurya to establish political unity in the country. The war waged by King Asoka against Kalinga in c. 260 BC (No 8, below) was epochal and far reaching in its significance. The large scale slaughter and bloodshed in the war filled the heart of the emperor with deep remorse and he became a Buddhist. He renounced war as a means of conquest, and undertook instead to conquer the hearts of the people and thereby establish the kingdom of right eousness. After the decline and fall of the Mauryan Empire, for several centuries there were a series of foreign invasions (e.g. Nos.9, 10, 14) and internecine wars which have been briefly referred to in the work. Of these, the most significant was the Turkish invasions in the 12th century AD under the leadership of Muhammad Ghori. The defeat of Prithviraja III Chahamana and his allies at the hands of Muhammad Ghori is a landmark in the history of the country as it laid the fou Printed Pages: 780. Seller Inventory # 63158

The institution of Khalifa and the State power: glimpses from Indian Sultanate Coins/Syed Ejaz Hussain. [17 articles are in Hindi]. Numismatics is one of the most valuable sources of ancient history. This volume includes 17 research papers in English and 16 in Hindi. They deal with different aspects of the subject under reference and provide valuable data for the furtherance of the numismatic study and history writing. The development of coins, seals and sealings and the economic history are directly related with the development of a civilization and culture. Therefore they provide us short yet authentic information about metallurgy, weight, signs and symbols, legend, manufacturing technique etc. They are not only an important piece of evidence for the reconstruction of history of their times but also help in substantiating a known fact. Inspite of an important archaeological source they should be used very cautiously as evidence for history writing. They have a plethora of information about the political and cultural history of the period they belong to and may be studied in the light of their mode of exchange, manufacturing technique, symbols and symbolism, legends, scripts, classification, statistical data, metal analysis, artistic evaluation, socio-economic perspectives etc. The book is very useful for the researcher in the field of Numismatic and Sigilography.
