A New History of India [2009]

£24.99

Product description

2009, eighth edition published by Oxford University Press.

'After more than twenty-five years in print, A New History of India continues to be the most readable and popular one-volume history of India available. Now in its eighth edition, this acclaimed text features updated scholarship and bibliographic material throughout and integrates new research on such incisive topics as the Indian diaspora, the economy, and the nuclear issue.
In lively, accessible language, Stanley Wolpert condenses more than 4,000 years of India's history into a graceful and engaging narrative. He discusses modern India's rapidly growing population, industry, and economy, and also considers the prospects for India's future. From a carefully balanced perspective, Wolpert presents a fair and truthful record of India's history-he offers both a triumphant portrayal of the brightest achievements of Indian civilisation as well as a sobering examination of its persistent social inequities and economic and political corruption.
Enhanced with striking new images and a full-colour map of India and the surrounding area, A New History of India, Eighth Edition, remains the authoritative text on the compelling-and often controversial-history of this fascinating country.'

In very good condition throughout. Fresh and clean with a tight binding. Light rubbing wear to the edges of the cover.
