India: A History
Grove Press, 2000 - 576 pagine
Jhon Keay's India: A History is a probing and provocative chronicle of five thousand years of South Asian history, from the first Harrapan settlements on the banks of the Indus River to the recent nuclear-arms race. In a tour de force of narrative history, Keay blends together insights from a variety of scholarly fields and weaves them together to chart the evolution of the rich tapestry of cultures, religions, and peoples that makes up the modern nations of Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh.
Authoritative and eminently readable, India: A History is a compelling epic portrait of one of the world's oldest and most richly diverse civilizations.

Review: India: A HistoryRecensione dell'utente - Brandon Rusnell - Goodreads
A moderately in-depth history of India, from centuries BC to completely modern times. Read it as a general overview of Indian history and culture prior to traveling there; it served this purpose very well. Leggi recensione completa
