India's history and culture is ancient and dynamic, beginning on the Indus River and in farming communities in the southern lands and punctuated by constant integration with migrating peoples and with the diverse cultures that surround the country. In the center of Asia, India is at the crossroad of cultures from China to Europe; it is also the most significant Asian connection with the cultures of Africa. The Historical Dictionary of Ancient India provides information ranging from the earliest Paleolithic cultures in the Indian subcontinent to 1000 CE. The ancient history of this country is related in this book through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on rulers, bureaucrats, ancient societies, religion, gods, and philosophical ideas.
