Village and Village Life in Ancient India
Village and Village Life in Ancient India
Description
About the Book:

In this work, an attempt has been made to present in a concise form the various and variegated facets of village and village life in northern India from c. 6the century BC, a great landmark in Indian history in several fields, to c. 1st century AD, by linking together pieces of evidence culled from literary and archaeological sources.

The first chapter deals with time frame, area of study and sources and their relative merit for historical reconstruction. The next two chapters discuss the form and character of villages and their position vis-à-vis towns and cities. The fourth chapter discusses socio-economic stratification, and the fifth, sixth and seventh chapters, aspects of social, economic and religious life, respectively. Administration and taxation forms the subject of the eighth chapter. The follow two appendices dealing with ownership of land, and grant of agricultural land and villages, respectively, a Bibliography and an Index. Forth-five line-drawings and twelve photographs have been added which throw light on various aspects of the life of the village folk.

Similarities and diversities between villages and towns have been highlighted, and an attempt has been made to distinguish between ideal and real, common and rare, and change and continuity.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
