This is one of the best books on ancient history of India and is quite useful for the preparation of Civil services and other like examinations where history plays a substantial role. I checked other websites, but found amazon offering the best deal (about Rs.40 cheaper than other places online). The book was in fact delivered a day before the expected delivery date. All in all a great purchase!

A very concise, informative and interesting book. I haven't read Upinder Singh yet, but I think this book should be read for setting-up a foundation of knowledge of ancient India's history, upon which you can build further by reading other books like Upinder Singh.

For civil services, that's what u need. Quality of paper is better than that used in old Ncert. Pictures and maps are clear. If anyone wants to buy Ncert but with better quality of print, this is the option.

Good one. A must read for Civil Services. This book was used by NCERT before 2000, so is the most authentic one I think. Lucid language. Biggest demerit is lack of pictures. Maps are there, but as you are studying Ancient India, pictures are very important for understanding.

Yes thankfully the old NCERT for class XI, which is out of print is finally available as a book. So civil services aspirants don't have to read those photocopies- which had who pages copied into one A4 size and NCERTs had two columns in one page so it had very small font as 4 column of words were squeezed into one page. This book is exactly the class XI NCERT minus, of course, needless photos.The font size and quality of pages are good unlike some people are going around complaining. Have to mention here though it is on recycled paper, but still quality is good.

One of the finest books written on Ancient History.. It covers all the relevant topics exhaustively.. And the explicable chronology at end of each chapter is extremely helpful to revise the whole content..
