Item description for India: Treasures from an Ancient World by Marilia Albanese...

For 5,000 years, India has undergone continual transformation, and the past is still very much present in modern-day India. Packed with outstanding photographs accompanying an insightful text, this book traces the evolution of ancient India, examining the major historical events from the 3rd millennium BC until the arrival of the Muslims in the 12th century AD. The text delves into aspects of daily life in ancient India–the social and political structures, village and city life, arts and aesthetics, and religion. The final section is a useful reference for travelers to India, presenting the country's most important artistic and religious sites, complete with floor plans, close-up details of statues and works of art, and a wealth of photographs that walk us through the country's most significant monuments. Throughout the book, hundreds of images depict the jewelry, statuary, and other artifacts created during each epoch, revealing details of daily life, spiritual beliefs, changes in dress and fashion, advances in technology, and much more. At the back of the book, an extensive glossary explains relevant terms. Anyone interested in ancient civilizations will be fascinated by this painstakingly researched and gorgeously illustrated volume.
Marilia Albanese teaches Indian Culture at the Civic School of Oriental Cultures and Languages in Milan. She recently produced a documentary on women in India.
