Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Indian subcontinent is a cradle of human civilization with a rich history stretching back some 5,000 years. Today it is home to a quarter of the world's population. While the boundaries and identities of the modern states of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives are recent inventions, the history, cultures, languages, and religions of South Asia are a single tapestry woven from many colored threads over the long millennia of cultural evolution.

South Asia is the home to four great religious traditions -- Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism -- but it also has the largest population of Muslims in the world. South Asia is home to many Christians who trace their lineage back to the Apostle Thomas, who is said to have settled in Kerala in 52 CE. A scene of epic wars and foreign invasions, the conquerors and colonialists were invariably themselves won over, and they were as much changed by India as they themselves changed India's history.

In turn, missionaries and traders from the Indian subcontinent-Hindu, Buddhist, and Muslim- spread their religions and cultures throughout Southeast and East Asia, leaving a profound mark on the cultures of Burma, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Tibet, China, Korea, Japan, and the Philippines.

Today, South Asia is a nexus in a global civilization, its children and grandchildren having traveled to every corner of the world, frequently joining the educated elites abroad and making significant contributions to arts and letters, science and industry, politics and finance. The continued story of Indian civilization is now a global and cosmopolitan enterprise and can no longer be contained in geographically boundaries in one corner of the world.
