UPINDER SINGH - Political Violence in Ancient India

Title: Political Violence in Ancient India
Description: Harvard University Press , 2017. First Edition, Hardcover. Fine Condition/Fine. 9780674975279 Firmly bound, clean bright pages, small mark to closed page block; unclipped jacket. Anyone who has accepted at face value the notion that India, as a civilization, from ancient times up till Mahatma Gandhi, was devoted to an ideal of nonviolence should read Upinder Singh's monumental Political Violence in Ancient India. Even a few pages will suffice to dispel the illusion. Indian history is as bloody as anywhere else's...She documents some three millennia of more or less continuous warfare as well as the ever-present coercive and punitive violence of the state. But in some sense, this work by one of India's finest more about India's present than about its long past. Perhaps that is always true of good historical thinking.-- (04/05/2018) 616 pages.
