Review – The Indus Civilization

A People’s History of India 2: The Indus Civilization

“Prof. Habib’s admirable book . . . is clearly written, effectively organized, better illustrated than most Indian productions and very nicely designed. Readers learn a good deal about the general nature of  archaeological research in the bargain. [It contains] a helpful and ample bibliography. . . .”

Antiquity (Vol. 77, No. 296, 2003)
“The material on the Harappan culture or the Indus Civilization is well compiled in this little book . . . there are enough nuggets of information in this book that a historian like Irfan Habib, far more than many archaeologists, is able to uncover.”
