Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a serious, careful, dependable book, broader and more varied even than the old Sources...It is also easy to read, to look at, and to hear; the new translations are always sound, often charming and occasionally quite brilliant. This is the primary study of Indian civilization.

(Wendy Doniger O'Flaherty, University of Chicago)

For over thirty years, anyone seriously interested in India has always had to keep a copy of this classic within arm's reach. Sources of Indian Tradition is so useful -- as a reference work, sourcebook, or textbook -- that it has been indispensable to scholars all over the world. I welcome the 'return' of this important work to the marketplace. Better still, I am delighted to note that, in matters of fine-tuning, this is an improved and updated and revised version.

(Robert Eric Frykenberg, University of Wisconsin, Madison)

By General Pete VINE VOICE on January 4, 2005
Format: Paperback
Most of the time I have large problems with huge collections of primary sources such as this too often we get a picture of society from the top down and not the bottom up. Whoever complied this collection did a very good job. There are sources from everywhere the old Mughal Empire, occupying British forces trying to take over India, Gandhi, Jinnah, Nehru, even Bose who is most often overlooked. There are even examples from the untouchables activists. Before I started the course for modern south asian history I didn't even know that there were such activists.

Overall-Stephen Hay did his homework. If you have an interest in Modern India this is the book to get.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent collection of primary sources on Modern India and Pakistan. It was required as part of a "Politics of South Asia" course and closely complemented the units studied. The editor strongly weaves together relevant sources, and provides helpful background information. Highly recommended for adoption.
