Vedas aren't just the scriptural texts, but the earliest record of Indo, Aryan civilisation. On the basis of this corpus of mankind's oldest literature, together with his indepth analyses of the later-day Puranic writings, Professor Bhargava offers the first ever systematic, well-knit study of the Aryan expansion on the Indian subcontinent since c. 3100 bc. Retrieving, thus, hard historical facts from the complex Sanskrit verses of ancient seers, Dr. Bhargava's book opens a fascinating panorama of life in Vedic India -- highlighting, in particular, its powerful dynastic families, its rishis, society, economic conditions, political setup; religion, philosophy and literature. The book also includes a vivid description of the Aryan homeland, its geography, flora, fauna, and a lot else. Now in its third enlarged, fully revrsed and updated edition; India in the Vedic Age has, ever since its first appearance in 1956, been acclaimed not only by prestigious journals or discerning readers, but also by many IndologistsISanskrit historians of worldwide eminence, including notably, A.L. Basham, K.D. Vajpeyi, Ludwik Stembach, T.G. Mainkar, and G.V. Devas. While A.S. Altekar acknowledged it as a distinct advance over Pargiter's work, Dr. Bhargava's book is certainly, as U.N. Ghoshal observed, the most original work of our time.

Author Bio: Dr. P.L. Bhargava is an eminent Indologist, who retired as Professor and Head of the Sanskrit Department, University of Rajasthan, Jaipur. A historian as well, he had been at the McMaster University, Ontario, Canada for about two years: 1974-76, as a Visiting Professor of Religion. His Ph.D. thesis, entitled: India in the Vedic Age, was hailed as the most original work of our times" (U.N. Ghoshal), a distinct advance over Pargiter's work (A.S. Altekar) and a brilliant sorting out of the very complex data into a clear and logical pattern (A.L. Basham). Professor Bhargava has already published six books and over 60 research papers.
