By Dipak Basu on December 17, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have made a mistake by buying this book, which is just a total failure.
The authors made swift surveys of many different aspects of pre-history of India without trying to analyse the context.
Their view is that everything that is great and good in India, including the Sanskrit language, all came from outside. Indians made no inventions, nothing at all.
This is a pathetic book, written by some really Racist British authors, who know possibly nothing about the ancient Indian literature and the description of the ancient India given in those literature.
The author with Catholic spirit accepted the False Theory of Aryan Invasion.
These people are not intellectual, just pretenders.
