Description

This monograph, which is a part of a larger project, a People's History of India, describes the earliest ages of human life in India, long before the existence of written records.

Sponsored by Aligarh Historians Society this monograph, a part of a larger project, a People's History of India, is dedicated to the cause of promoting the scientific method in history and resisting communal and chauvinistic interpretations.

The monograph is divided into three chapters. Chapter 1 treats in brief the geological formation of India, and changes in its climate and natural environment in so far as these relate to our understanding of prehistory and history. Chapter 2 provides the story of man, first in the global context, and then within India. Chapter 3 describes the coming of agriculture and the beginning of exploitative relationships.
