Stanley Wolpert delivers one of the most concise yet thorough accounts of Indian history to date. He does an excellent job of looking at the development of the subcontinent from the days of BC to the modern Tamil and Pakistani conflicts afflicting the nation today. I read this book to get a background on India as a whole and was not disappointed in its quality. It goes into enough detail to understand the story of how India developed as a country with excellent references on where to get more information. Whether you are looking for a basic textbook of India or an introduction to a study for further use this is a great place to start. From a historical standpoint it is very difficult to write a great survey book but this delivers on every possible expectation for a survey. For those who have knowledge on this subject they may find this book maddeningly frustrating or subject to bias and revisionism however from a novice standpoint I do not see much evidence of that. The citations clearly point to sources where ideas come from and they can be verified through independent reading. Highly recommend for those wanting to learn more about India and how it developed as a nation.

Come, let us sit upon the ground and tell sad stories of the death of prime ministers. The sixth edition of A New History of India gives a chiefly political, mostly modern history of one of the world's most ancient civilizations, and consists mostly of fighting and politics (which is like fighting, and often leads to it). I found Jawaharlal Nehru's running commentary on India in Glimpses of World History far more useful for appreciating pre-modern India, but that work has the limitation of havin..more

An accessible, readable general overview of Indian history from the dawn of civilization to the current day. The books aims high and almost delivers. It is a little uneven, giving a bit too much detail of the wheeling and deeling of party politics in the modern era. The writing veers back and forth between poetic and mundane. But it was comprehensive and I certainly learned much from reading it.

This book is a brillant overview of India--religion, society, politics, history, etc.
So well written, it is a joy to read and reread. Some parts are a bit 'tongue in cheek' and added levity to the subject.
An excellent birds eye view of a great country..

An introductory history of India.
About 25% covers prehistory through ~1600. Much of the information here is about the development of different religions. Wolpert is not very clear whether the arrival of the Aryans was an invasion, conquest, or migration. He uses terms like 'Aryan invasion' and 'Aryan conquest' most of the time, but says at the beginning of one chapter that it was more of a gradual assimilation. So why call it a conquest or invasion?
Another 25% covers the European trading/coloni..more

Interesting as far as histories go, but its layout and organization are not so great. With the amount of information that's presented, the chapters should have been divided into different sections (economics, politics, religion etc.) like a textbook as opposed to the winding prose of a popular history book. And the text can be a bit lumpy. He goes into great detail on somethings but glides over others. So the pace is very stop-and-go. I haven't finished it yet, but I will eventually. It's just n..more

If you want a thorough and concise history of India, read this book. I had to read this for college and enjoyed it considerably. The book reviews approximately 4,000 years of India's history through to--almost--the current day.

I haven't read a ton on Indian history, but I am betting there are better books than this one - which wasn't a great read.
