Publisher Description

Early India from the Origins to A.D. 1300. By ROMILA THAPAR. Berkeley and Los Angeles: UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA PRESS, 2002. Pp. xxx + 556, maps, figs. $18.95. Romila Thapar's A History of India, vol. 1, was published by Penguin Books in 1966. Nearly forty years later that "book, written when one had just been initiated into the profession, now being revised late in life, has elements of an autobiography" (p. xvii). This solemn declaration has tempted me to engage in some form of parallel reading, keeping both editions open in front of me and noting some of the correspondences and differences. This review reflects the notes I took in the process.
