The Landmarks of South Asian Civilizations outlines the history and civilization of South Asia from prehistory to the Independence of the Sub-continent. Like other works on the subject it does not ignore Sri Lanka (Ceylon). Although it discusses the political development, the work mainly concentrates on trying to understand the process of continuity and change in life and condition of people through the ages. It analyses the main currents of religion, society, literature and art on the sub-continent in considerable depth. The chapter on the struggle for Independence is also detailed. The work is based mainly on original sources and the latest research on the subject. However, on the pattern of Cambridge histories and similar works, it has been decided not to burden it with footnotes although its presentation is critical. Printed Pages: 544.
