Product description


'Joseph deftly and brilliantly summarizes new findings of genetics that definitively solve old problems in South Asian history, and show we are all migrants and, ultimately, kin. A timely, fascinating and courageous book.' Sheldon Pollock

'A remarkably accessible overview of the early stages of ancient Indian history.' Michael Witzel

'An amazing book, written in an engaging style . . . It grabs your interest from the first sentence.' Bibek Debroy

'Intellectual omnivore Tony Joseph offers an enjoyable meander through a minefield of how our ancestors got here.' Pranay Lal

'[A] very readable account . . . should be of interest to anyone curious about the waves of migration and intermixing that resulted in the rich tapestry that makes up the people of today's India.' Venki Ramakrishnan

'At a time when the issue of the peopling of the planet by anatomically modern humans is becoming hotter and hotter, Tony Joseph has admirably cooled it down. He goes deep into recent developments in ancient DNA studies on human remains and delves into the issue of the "Aryan Migration". This is a vexing issue and not so easy to conclude. However, Joseph has marshalled multidisciplinary data from archaeology, linguistics, genetics and literature to support his stand on the issue. This is perhaps the most scientific way of presenting the Aryan debate. Lucidity is the hallmark of this book.' Ravi Korisettar

'Masterful and unbiased reconstruction of human presence in India using evidence from archaeology, ancient and modern history, linguistics, geography and genetics, with a tilt on genetic evidence.' Partha P. Majumder

'If you really want to know who we are, and how we got here, this is the book for you. A thrilling account of our extraordinary past - I couldn't put it down.' Gurcharan Das
