Communalism and the Writing of Indian History

It is not usual for the authors of a book to comment at length upon a review of their writing. We have however decided to do this because Sudhir Chandra (A Counterpoint of Preconceptions," December 27, 1969, pp 1981- 83) has seriously distorted our views.

A Dynamic View of Early Indian Society

Early Indian Society and Economy by R. S, Sharma; Manaktalas, Bombay, 1966; pp. ix + 168. Rs 22.50. The book is a collection of essays some of which have been published earlier. The essays are all concerned with some aspect of the society and economy of India from its earliest beginnings upto about 1200 A.D.
