1 Nayanjot Lahiri
Ashoka in Ancient India
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8178243881 / 9788178243887; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Ancient rulers regarded him as the iconic Buddhist king. Jawaharlal Nehru considered him the greatest emperor of all time. H.G. Wells portrayed him as the sole shining star of antiquity. But who was the flesh-and-blood Ashoka? The third emperor of the Maurya dynasty, Ashoka ruled an empire encompassing most of India as well as its western borderlands. He was normal as a ruler of uncommon ambition, but utterly unusual as the pioneer of a model of humane governance. In fact the candour and emotion of his messages on stone show him less as a political figure than as a self-reflective individual. Recovering Ashoka’s life and times from legend, Nayanjot Lahiri crafts a wonderful biography of this most extraordinary emperor. She provides him with contextual flesh, teasing out his psychology and personality from his edicts and archaeological data about life in India over the last few centuries BCE. This is the most historically rich and readable book on Ashoka and his context. Printed Pages: 414. 038349

Pre-Ahom Assam: Studies in the Inscriptions of Assam Between the Fifth and the Thirteenth Centuries AD
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1991; 81-215-0463-X; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
The large scale donations of land in different parts of the Indian subcontinent is one of the major socio-cultural trends of the post-Gupta phase. Pre-Ahom Assam focuses on these phenomena in the Brahmaputra valley, the thirty-two inscriptions, twenty of which record royal grants of land to Brahmins, forming the basic historical sources of this period. The historiography and the different technical aspects of the grants such as their basic distribution, language and palaeography are lucidly analysed. Different aspects of pre-Ahom society, polity and economy are visualized through the microcosm of the epigraphs. The system of landholding and the general character of the peasantry are discussed in the light of the relevant ethnographic evidence in the context of pre-modern Assam. The cultural character of Assam and its relationship with Southeast Asia is a controversial issue both in historical studies and in contemporary perceptions of the region. The collective testimony of the inscriptions under study goes against any close Southeast Asian link, clearly underlying that throughout the course of her early documented history, the Brahmaputra valley looked towards inner India. The historical analysis of the trade routes between Assam, north Burma and China contained in an important appendix to the book also underlines this basic argument. Printed Pages: 188. 032944
