This work attempts a fresh treatment to present the history and culture of a free nation in its correct perspective.This volume follows an entirely new scheme of treatment which is more systematic and more informative than the relevant volume of the earlier series. The Imperial Gazetteer Volume on History had been written from the point of view of an imperial power.The main emphasis in this volume has been on the social, cultural, economic and artistic life of the people. The necessary background of political history has been given it. The political history of each period is followed by chapters on economic life, society, religion, literature, art and architecture.
