The history and culture of ancient India is rich and complex. However, most history classes only touch on the most prominent aspects of ancient Indian culture, such as Hinduism. Readers experience the full breadth of this ancient society through detailed text, insightful quotes from historians, and fascinating sidebars. Vivid photographs and historical images are included to enhance the reading experience. From the lives of powerful historical figures to the stories of mythological heroes, ancient India comes to life in a way that strongly supplements standard social studies curricula.
