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
