Main Currents in Indian History

Ancient, Medieval and Modern: From the Beginnings to 1964

By K.S. Kameswara Rao

Since the beginning of the 18th century, the historiography of India witnessed the appearance of innumerable books, based on the perspectives of the traditional, colonial and imperialist, nationalist, Marxist, subaltern, interdisciplinary and postmodern which disguised the process of history of India. Consequently, the scope of the Indian historiography grew from a purely chronological framework of polity, society, economy, and culture as independent entities to that of understanding the linkages between them in shaping the course of historical development. This book - which is a synthesized, open-ended narrative of India's long journey from the earliest to the modern period - includes all aspects of human life and relations in time and space. It summarizes the process and nature of historical change as perceived by different historians reflecting the latest trends of historical research, enabling students and laymen to understand and comprehend this process.
