After more than twenty-five years in print, A New History of India continues to be the most accessible and popular one-volume history of India available. Stanley Wolpert has condensed more than 4,000 years of India's history into a graceful and engaging text. He discusses modern India's rapidly growing population, industry, and economy, and also considers the prospects for India's future. Wolpert strives to record India's history fairly and truthfully, portraying the brightest achievements of Indian civilization as well as its persistent social inequities and its economic and political corruption. Now entirely redesigned, A New History of India, 7/e, includes photographs for the first time, a full-color map of India and the surrounding area, updated bibliographic material, and a revised final chapter reflecting the significant social, political, and economic issues that have arisen since the year 2000.
