Iron and Social Change in Early India
Iron and Social Change in Early India
Description
From the Jacket:

From the time it was first discussed in 1960s, no other aspect of the Iron Age in India has attracted so much attention and generated such vibrant debate among historians and archaeologists as the relationship between iron technology and social change. This volume, the seventh in the Debates in Indian History and Society series, focuses on all major issues surrounding the debate and identifies and situates their proponents in the historiography of ancient India.

The book is divided into three parts. The first two sections focus on the formulation of iron-surplus-complex society thesis, the new insights and alternative possibilities deriving from the continued debate. The last section provides novel perspectives from regions lying outside the Gangetic Plains - northern India, central India, Kathiawar, and Tamil Nadu. Sahu discusses key arguments in his introduction and their complexities, in the process delineating changing perspectives, historiographical shifts, and emerging concerns.

This volume includes essays by eminent historians and archaeologists like D.D. Kosambi, R.S. Sharma, Niharranjan Ray, Dilip K. Chakrabarti, D.P. Agarwal, Rajan Gurukal, and Shereen Ratnagar. It will be a significant read for students, scholars and teachers of ancient Indian history, Indian archeology, anthropology, and history of Science.

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
