Primary sources in the history, philosophy, and religions of South Asia: Volume II focuses on the subcontinent's history from 1498 to 1984, with such topics as the opening of India to the West; Hindu and Muslin social and religious movements; and Pakistan's formation as an Islamic state.

This is a serious, careful, dependable book , broader and more varied even than the old Sources. . . . The new translations are always sound, often charming, and occasionally quite brilliant. This is the primary study of Indian civilization.
