About The Book

Notwithstanding the remarkable progress in the realm of historical enquiry in our country, ancient India still remains a mysterious domain where the extant source-materials have proved to be inadequate and dubious. This explains why so many topics of ancient India history and culture have raged unending controversies among the historians. The present work mostly revolves around a few such controversial issues which have been objectively studied afresh in the light of the available data, literary and archeological.

The book comprises eight chapters: the Imperial Mauryas: Some Problems’, The Pala kings of Bengal and Bihar’, Side-Lights on the Religious Life of Ancient Orissa’, ‘The Satamana metallic Currency’, ‘Some Disquieting Features of Indian Archeology’, ‘Different Categories of the Brahmin Donees’, ‘Historical Researches in West Bengal’ and professor Dines Chandra Sircar’.
