With more than a billion people and a rich cultural history, India is the world's largest independent democracy. Beautifully illustrated with period photographs, documents, paintings, and architecture, India: A Primary Source Cultural Guide tells the complete story of the Indian people. Bridging the ancient world with the modern one, the book tells of India's first known civilization and covers in detail the origins of Buddhism, influences of the Greek world, and the tales of India's great conquerors. Indian art and architecture are well illustrated, and the influence of British rule, twentieth-century modernization, and India's independence are also thoroughly explained.
