Quantity:

Taken together, the three volumes of this set offer a definitive historical perspective of Indian archaeology through a selection of astonishingly wide-ranging but integrated body of sources up to the 1980s.

This volume takes one to the tentative beginnings of Indian sculptural, architectural numismatic & inscriptional studies and tries to give an idea of what has been generally achieved in the fields of human skeletal discoveries, rock-art and religion. The articles chosen for the first section will give a feel of how it all began: how some of the classical sculptural and architectural sites of the subcontinent were approached and described and what Princep's chain of reasoning was when he studied the early Indian coins or grappled with the decipherment of Asokan inscriptions.

The intention is only to draw attention to the basic foundations of these sub-disciplines. A consideration of their later developments is not within the focus of this book. For the rest of the topics, the authirs remained content with a limited number of essays which played a role in shaping the themes.

TESTIMONIALS

Your personal e-mail reply answered my question about the shipping rate and touched my heart with the description about your spiritual, ecological, and ethical commitment to justice and planetary care. I have forwarded your note to friends in the U.S. and look forward to receiving these books, which I will use to educate my daughter and to use as examples in my writing about environmental children's literature. Thank you for the work you do!...
