History of Science and Technology

Exploring New Themes

Edited by: Rattan Lal Hangloo

Despite being a relatively new entrant to the domain of history, the history of science and technology has attracted a substantial number of researchers into its fold. The essays in this volume offer a fascinating glimpse at the cornerstones of the history of science and technology in India. They touch upon themes ranging from the most primitive human fossils of India to the reconsideration of the scientific policy resolution in Nehruvian era, and they analyze the key dynamics of how the present has developed. The book examines the nature and consequences of the significant advances made by Indian science and technology from antiquity down to present times.
