 DESCRIPTION
spacer

Any attempt to encompass the vast panorama of Indian culture within the covers of a single volume, except in some select aspects, is almost an impossibility. The present work, by itself a compendium of indological studies, touches upon some salient facets of this culture which expresses itself mainly and broadly in art and archaeology. Of this manifold expression ivory, painting, textiles, etc. in art, and epigraphy, numismatics, iconography, etc. in archaeology constitute the main contents of the book. The work--the fruit of devoted studies for more than four decades--has tried to uncover and present this complex culture, ancient and medieval, in both comprehensive essays and in studies on individual problems, in forty chapters and an appendix. This richly illustrated book seeks to bring to the reader the diverse character of the culture of this sub-continent and its ever-growing efflorescence in different epochs and in different regions, underscoring at the same time its sub-current of unity.

In its comprehensive character and lucidity of presentation in each survey of the subjects under different chapters, as also in the deep analytical studies on each problem in some of the other chapters, the work not only stands out on its own merit, but is sure to remain as a provocative source-material for further research.
