1 Uma Prasad Thapliyal
Foreign Elements in Ancient Indian Society
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1979; 8121502365 / 9788121502368; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 
In Indian history the decline of the Mauryan empire synchronised with large scale invasions leading to foreign occupation of northern India and parts of the Deccan. This also resulted in the infiltration of sizable foreign population. The political consequences of these invasions were indeed great and these have been adequately dealt with by scholars. The social consequences of foreign invasions have not, however, attracted the attention of scholars in the same measure. This book is an attempt to analyse and interpret these political upheavals in cultural terms. Food and drinks, dress ornaments and toilet, cults and cult objects, social organization and the caste system and social entertainments are primary to a society where the influence, if any, is most fundamental. These are, therefore, the aspects which have been taken up for studying the social impact of foreign invasions. Printed Pages: 210. 015153

B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8176464635 / 9788176464635; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book has been conceived to fulfil a long felt needs of a popular book on Garhwal-Kumaon hills. Though in past few years, particularly after the creation of Uttaranchal state, many books have been added but these generally relate to the history of the region. This book tries to cover all important aspects of the history and culture of the people so as to produce a complete picture of the region. The main objective of the book is to familiarize the new generation of Uttaranchalis (Paharis), born and brought up outside the state, with the land of their forefathers. To this end, the book not only includes chapters on the history and geography of the region but also on the life of people, their religion and beliefs, art and literature, folk and songs and dances etc. It is hoped that the book generates an urge for pilgrimage among the readers and inspires them to make a journey of the land of Gods (Deva-bhumi). An epilogue had been added at the end of the book. Contents:- Foreword Preface 1. Land and the People 2. Political History 3. Martial Tradition 4. System of Governance 5. Places of Pilgrimage 6.
