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.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
