Book Description

Thrilling new biography about the first man to rule all of the Indian subcontinent, from one of the great chroniclers of India.

From the Back Cover

In his quest to govern India by moral force alone, India's lost emperor Ashoka Maurya turned Buddhism from a minor sect into a world religion and set up a new yardstick for government which had huge implications for Asia. But his brave experiment ended in tragedy and his name was cleansed from the record so effectively that he was forgotten for almost two thousand years. Yet a few mysterious stone monuments and inscriptions survived, and the story of how these keystones to the past were discovered and deciphered is every bit as remarkable as their author himself. In this fascinating book, India's ancient history is rediscovered.

'A thrilling book which reads like a mystery novel . . . Read this and you will see how absorbing history can be' Lord Meghnad Desai, author of Rediscovery of India

'Like an explorer in a jungle, stripping away the foliage from a long-forgotten city, Charles Allen brings to light the most extraordinary ruler in Indian history' Tom Holland, author of Rubicon

'A labour of love and notable scholarship, Charles Allen's Ashoka is a fitting testament to a forgotten epic of discovery . . . All who relish India's antiquity should read this book' John Keay
