The Timeline History of India (Timeline History Series)

by Dilip Hiro




The Timeline History provides a concise and clear overview of India's often tortuous political narrative, while providing in-depth information on the country's ancient and complex cultures. Covering the history of India from the Indus Valley civilization to present day, its continuous timeline is complemented with sidebars on the Bhagavad Gita, Hinduism, the Taj Mahal, the Nehru-Gandhi family and a host of other topics. Also featuring dozens of illustrations and quotations, the Timeline History is a convenient and vital reference.

Born in the Indian sub-continent, Dilip Hiro was educated in India, Britain and America, where he received a Master's degree at Virginia Polytechnic & State University. He settled in London in the mid-1960s, and became a full-time writer, journalist and commentator. He has published 27 books, including The Essential Middle East: A Comprehensive Guide, and The Iranian Labyrinth.
