There are many histories of India, but Hugh Tinker's, when published in 1966, was the first history of South Asia. Professor Tinker's treatment of South Asia as a unified field of historical study gives a depth and breadth to this subject which has hitherto been lacking. In this second edition, considerably revised and expanded, two new chapters bring into focus the events of the last twenty years.
