Dr. S. C. Ray’s Early History and Culture of Kashmir is an outstanding piece of research on a very important region of India. He brings out clearly the unique characteristics of Kashmir history. Not only does he give a connected narrative of Kashmir’s political evolution based on all available sources, literary, archaeological, numismatic, foreign allusions etc., but brings out the cultural, religious and social development of the people of the valley. It’s in my opinion a model of what such regional histories ought to be and I congratulate Dr. Ray on producing a work of great value on an area which should be better known to the people of India as a whole.
