Editorial Reviews

". . . [A] groundbreaking book. . . . [Bryant] does an extraordinary job of showing the ambiguity and uncertainty of both linguistic and archeological evidence for either a migration of indigenous presence of 'Aryans' in India (little has been convincingly proved or disproved). . . . A mustget for libraries and must read for interested scholars."--Religious Studies Review
