Study of early Indian historiography has received greater attention of scholars in recent years and some interesting works have been seen to come out. This book is characterized by a pioneering dash into an accumulated mass to ancient Indian history writings over the years contained in the proceedings of Indian history Congress. It introduces a serious researcher Dr. Vandana Verma expressing her interdisciplinary and evaluative insight which distinguishes the work from other studies. It is a departure from identifying trends of Indian historiography on the basis of observed biases or presuppositions. It is also marked by a refreshingly fresh approach to the historical development based on concrete data. Bibliography is impressive and up-to-date and presentation is lucid. Prof. Samaresh Bandyopadhyay?s enlightening ?foreword? explains the background of this work. Contents Preface 1. State of Early Indian Historiography on the Eve of the Founding of Indian history Congress 2. The Expanding Source-Base 3. Aspects and Dimensions 4.
