"Keay's panoramic vision and multidisciplinary approach serves the function of all great historical writing. It illuminates the present." --Thrity Umrigar, The Boston Globe "A handsomely published book with over sixty wonderful relevant maps, charts, and tables, and a plethora of beautiful illustrations, many of them in color. . . . Keay deals well with India's long and intricate history. . . . Keay's treatment of early India is often sprinkled with his passionate eloquence, which is also evident in the rest of the book. . . . One of the best to be published in the field for some time and could be read to great advantage by students of Indian history and by those who enjoy history in general." --Bawa Satinder Singh, The Journal of Asian Studies "A superb one-volume history of a land that defies reduction into simple narrative . . . Without peer among general studies, a history that is intelligent, incisive, and eminently readable." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Ambitious . . . [Keay] carefully uncovers India's prehistory--a great challenge given that the ancient Indians left no texts--and skillfully describes the evolving Indian concepts of kingship, statecraft, and military strategy." --Lucian W. Pye, Foreign Affairs "A comprehensive account . . . A robust book." --Amit Roy, India Today "It is hard to imagine anyone succeeding more gracefully in producing a balanced overview than John Keay has done. . . . One can only hope that Keay's India will be widely read, and its lessons taken to heart." --William Dalrymple, The Guardian (London) "Sweeping from the ancient brick cities of Mohenjo-daro and Harappa, built in the Indus Valley around 2000 b.c., to modern India's urban middle class armed with computers and cell phones, this erudite, panoramic history captures the flow of Indian civilization. . . . A banquet for connoisseurs and serious students of India." --Publishers Weekly
