PressestimmenReview of the hardback: 'This insightful work offers an exciting, new perspective on the culture of classical India, one that is sure to inject fresh vigour into this neglected, and until recently almost moribund, field of study. Ali does what no one has done before ... It is a major contribution to the field and should be read by everyone with a serious interest in India's early culture.' South Asian Studies
