Ancient India by V. D. Mahajan
Book Summary:

It gives me great pleasure to place the new edition of the book in the hands of the esteemed readers. In the preparation of this new edition, I have taken great pains. The first chapter dealing with Historical Writings on India, Geographical features of India, effect of geography on the History of India and the Fundamental Unity of India has been completely rewritten. The chapter on the Dravidians has also been rewritten with a lot of new information. The chapter on the Harappa Culture has been re-written completely and brought upto date. The latest information on the subject has been included. The Chapter on the Maurayan Administration, Culture and Civilisation during the Mauryan Age, Social, Religious, Economic and Cultural Conditions in Post-Maurayan Times, Social and Cultural Conditions of Northern India between 650 and 1000 A.D. and Republics in Ancient India have been rearranged and put in their proper places. I have added in this edition Social Economic and Religious Conditions in the Gupta Age. The chapter on the Contribution of South India to Indian Culture and the Sangam Age have also been rewritten. I have no doubt that the readers will find a lot of freshness in this new edition.
