"This book deals with the geological and archaeological results of an expedition carried out to understand the Ice Age cycle in the Himalayas and to unravel the Pleistocene history of the Stone Age in other parts of India. Due to the regional division of this fieldwork, the book has two main categories. The first, Part I, deals with the Ice Age in southwestern Kashmir including Sind, Liddar, Pir Panjal, Jammu and Ladakh and the second, Part II, III, IV, and V, studies the Pleistocene and archaeological studies in other parts of India, mainly Potwar and Indus regions and Central and Peninsular India. This arrangement will enable the reader to first get acquainted with the classical cycle in the Himalayas and then understand the Pleistocene stratigraphy of the adjoining plains. The work, originally published in 1939, has long been out-of-print and is being reissued in a limited edition. It is hoped that this book will facilitate an understanding of Pleistocene geology and prehistory in Asia and encourage the development of a border science, in which geologists and archaeologists jointly study human evolution." Printed Pages:368 with 193 figures, 2 maps & 122 halftone illustrations.
