Prehistory of India gives a vivid account of the conditions of man in the Indian sub-continent during the period antecedent to the dawn of history. The narrative is diligently pieced from the study of man's environs and remains at Harappa. Ahar, Malwa, Jorwe, Southern Neolithic and other cultures. It presents in a absorbing manner the indomitable courage and remarkable ingenuity displayed by man in subjugating the primordial environment. The illustrations enhance the perspicuity of the text.
This is written for the general reader to stimulate his curiousity and whet his appetite for the choice delicacies pre-history has to offer, without in anyway detracting from its utility to the scholar.
