From the Earliest Times to the Present Day.

We hope that in the twenty first revised and enlarged edition of the present book the thorough revision of the Chapter 16 on Modernization’ will enhance the usefulness of the book. The main theme of the book is the history of the Indian culture which reveals outstanding unity of spirit and remarkable continuity of effort to achieve a rich and complex civilization of unrivalled values. A power of assimilation and synthesis has through the ages characterized the Indian culture. It has worked not only in the religious thought and social institutions of ancient India but also manifested in the persistent efforts at the conciliation of conflicting tendencies during the medieval period and it continues even today when Now, let the Indian culture, which has been urging humanity to move forward in its march carry the present warring world to greater summits of achievements.
