Format: Paperback
Please, do not be put off by the reactionary responses of the other reviewers. Essentially, this book aids in pointing out that the so-called "Aryan Invasion of India" theory rests on flimsy evidence at best. If anyone is representing an agenda, it is examples such as the other reviewers, who insist on defending a theory which is clearly tenuous.
It is not related in Frawley's book, but is is little known that the myth of the Aryan race originated in the eighteenth century, and was influenced by occult theories of human origin, and the Kabbalah, a form of Jewish mysticism, thought to have been revealed to the earliest ages of humanity. Refusing to accept its Jewish origins, European scholars created the myth of the Aryan race, to attribute to themselves the propagation of this "Ancient Wisdom".
Resorting to the myth of the lost continent of Atlantis, it was here that the Aryan race was said to have been born. After escaping the cataclysm that submerged that continent, the Aryans supposedly escaped to the mountains of Asia. It was from there that they were to have set forth, conquering much of the known world, particularly India, where they are said to have been responsible for its caste system and its most ancient scriptures, the Vedas.
Today, these peoples are referred to as Caucasians or Indo-Europeans. Though supportive evidence of such an invasion is lacking, historians continue to maintain the occurence of such an invasion as fact. It is one clearly designed to further a political agenda, and one which needs to be duly eradicated, and it is for this reason that Mr. Frawley's book is helpful.

Format: Paperback
David Frwaley has done a great job of bringing some buried truths to light. The English colonialists divided India through their clandestine theory of aryan invasion. I would pose one question to proponents of aryan invasion theory: Where are the evidences which CONCLUSIVELY prove that aryans invaded India and destroyed Harappan civilization? I have read in history books (written by marxist historians) that Harappans did not know about horse. But 5000 year old Horse bones have been excavated at Harappa and other indus valley sites. A maritime civilzation dating back to 8000 years has been recently unearthed near Dholavira (Gujarat) which used seals strikingly similar to harappan seals. Above all the recent decipherment of Indus script by Shri N Jha and N S Rajaram is a final nail in its coffin. I would suggest that everyone should also read "Deciphered Indus Script" written by them. It has a clean and incontrovertible methodology which leads us to believe that something is terribly wrong with Aryan Invasion theory. Moreover the whole aryan invasion theory has its basis on Max mueller's 1500 BC date to Rig vedas. But the irony is that Max mueller himself, in his last years, suspected the date he assigned to rig veda (refer few of his letters).

15 of 20 people found the following review helpful By "mysticmusing" on June 13, 2004
Format: Paperback
This is a 74 page book that serves as an introduction to the myth of the AIT and lays out in very cogent terms the extremely precarious foundations of this travesty of archaeological and historical conclusions.
This book neither promises nor delivers air-tight proof. That is left for other, more lengthy books on the subject by this author and others who share his passion. Inquisitive readers, who will want more information, will do well to read these books that systematically drive nails into the AIT coffin.
Highly recommended as an introduction to the AIT and the issues that make it ring false.
As an aside: This is a must-read for all you Black Metal neo-fascist/nationalist white people. As someone who has followed and enjoyed BM for many years now, I have come across many of your ilk. Before you so hastily label yourself Aryan - read this book and get your history right.
Also: One Amazon page credits a certain Mukhtar Naqvi for this book. I don't know why that is so. There is no evidence of his being involved whatsoever with this book.

This is a great book for people from the indian subcontinent to identify with their real roots and also an eye-opener for the western population to realise the veracity of the myth they have been living with for so many years.
