India is the world's largest democracy and its seventh biggest country with one-sixth of the global population, comprising an unparalleled diversity of ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups. India is also the world's fourth largest economy in terms of purchasing power parity and even as it gains recognition as an emerging modern power, India's rich civilization goes back many thousands of years.

The scope of this concise encyclopedia encompasses important people, places, and events in India's past and present (till 2004), as well as entries on the country's different schools of philosophy, culture, religious leaders, important branches of government, and the economy. The author's masterly introduction provides a rich overview with many an insight and is supplemented by a chronology, maps, and an extensive bibliography. With more than two hundred new entries - most pertaining to the recent years - the second edition captures the rapidly evolving situation without neglecting the country's ancient past.

Table of Contents:

  • Foreword
  • Acknowledgements
  • Abbreviations and Acronyms
  • Maps
  • Chronology
  • Introduction
  • Encyclopedia Entries
  • Appendixes
  • Glossary
