Chandragupta Maurya: A Gem of Indian History
Chandragupta Maurya: A Gem of Indian History
Description

From the Jacket:

A Ksatriya hero of little-known antecedents, Chandragupta Maurya was unmistakably a born leader of men, within twenty-four years of his reign: 317 BC-293, established a gigantic empire by not unifying the countless fragments of a distracted India, but annexing some of the erstwhile Persian dominions as well. Professor Bhargava here profiles this "first historical emperor of India", in all essential detail.

Based on diverse original sources, notably, Brahmanical, Buddhist, Jaina, and Greek, the book sets out a fascinating, well-knit narrative delineating Chandragupta Maurya: the man, his times, and his meteoric rise to political supremacy - with contextual focus on the state of polity, administrative mechanisms, religion, society, economy, literature and arts during his rule. The author also tries to apply correctives to the myths woven around Chandragupta in legend, literature, and chronicles.

Acclaimed alike by historians and Indological journals of repute, Dr. Bhargava's book is now in its second: enlarged and thoroughly revised against the backdrop of the latest research finding.

About the Author:

Dr. P.L. Bhargava is an eminent Indologist, who retired as professor and Head of the Sanskrit Department, University of Rajasthan, Jaipur. A historian of equal renown too, he had been at the McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, for about two years: 1974-76, as a Visiting Professor of Religion. His Ph.D. thesis, entitled: India in the Vedic Age was hailed as "the most original work of our times" (U.N. Ghoshal), "a distinct advance over Pargiter's work" (A.S. Altekar), and "a brilliant sorting out of the very complexion data into clear and logical pattern" (A.L. Basham).

A recipient of many academic honours - the latest among which being the 1994-94 President's Award for "Eminent Sanskritists", Professor Bhargava has already published eight books and over 60 papers.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
Rita Wason
I got my order today. It was well packed and looks lovely.
