Overview: India: A History

India: A History, is a book that talks about the country in all its glory, right from the Harappa civilisation to modern times. Through this book, the author John Keay highlights social, economic and cultural aspects of the sub-continent that are unique and notable. The book also focuses on countries such as Bangladesh and Pakistan, as they were part of ancient India, and pays special attention to former nation states like Kashmir, Punjab and Assam. The book was published by HarperCollins Publishers India in July, 2010.

John Keay, an English writer and journalist, writes extensively on India and the Far East. Some of his works are Into India, The Honourable Company: A History of the English East India Company and China: A History. Like most of his books on Indian history, India: A History, too, discusses various aspects of Indian history and culture in an entertaining manner.

Indian history has fascinated historians and history buffs due to its sheer diversity and richness. India: A History celebrates this diversity, starting with the Indus Valley civilisation and going on to explain the significant economic and social changes that the country underwent over hundreds of years to become what it is today. It touches on the invasion of Alexander the Great and talks about the reign of the Moghuls in India, the coming of the East India Company and the establishment of the British rule, which is studied from the perspective of the present day. Major events in the history of India, such as India's partition, are thoroughly covered here. In a single volume, the author has attempted to interpret the glorious and fascinating history of the subcontinent that has become multiple nations, but with a unified heritage.

In India: A History, John Keay provides a detailed account of the gradual transformation the country went through, starting from the Harappa civilisation to the post-independent era. The English edition of this book has 608 pages and it is available in paperback. The ISBN 10 of the book is 0007307756 and the ISBN 13 of the book is 9780007307753.
