Early Indian History and Beyond is a tribute to Professor B.D. Chattopadhyaya's profound scholarship by a community of well-known scholars, his former colleagues, and students sharing his enthusiasm in the field of Early Indian history. The first section of the book is devoted to a personal reminiscence, write ups on his contributions and a list of books and papers published by him. Stimulated by Chattopadhyaya's areas of scientific interests, the second section is a bouquet of twenty-six essays, arranged in five subthemes: Historical Perspectives from Texts; Looking through the Epigraphic Lens; Art and Religion; City, Trade and Markets; and History and Historiography. Through these outstanding essays, tribute is paid to Chattopadhyaya's remarkable efforts to develop a distinctive historiography in the studies of Indian history. This collection reflects the sincerity and respect of his admirers.
