Admired for its spiritual traditions (two of the world's major religions Hinduism and Buddhism originated here), for its peaceful struggle for independence led by Mohandas K. Gandhi, and for its vibrant culture (from Bollywood and spicy cuisine to classical music and world-renowned authors), India has had a long and fascinating history. However, while most people are familiar with certain parts of Indian history and culture, the roots of the country's contemporary society and politics are not always well understood in the West. Covering approximately 5,000 years of history, A Brief History of India, Second Edition offers an accessible, reliable introduction to the rich and diverse history of India. Coverage includes: -Caste, Kings, and the Hindu World Order -Gandhi and the Nationalist movement -Constructing the Nation -Bollywood and Beyond -India in the Twenty-First Century.
