about

Western scholars have argued that Indian civilization was the joint product of an invading Indo-European people--the "Indo-Aryans"--and indigenous non-Indo European peoples. Although Indian scholars reject this European reconstruction of their country's history, Western scholarship giveslittle heed to their argument. In this book, Edwin Bryant explores the nature and origins of this fascinating debate.

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
