1903. In this volume Rhys, the celebrated Buddhist scholar,
attempts to describe ancient India, during the period of Buddhist
ascendancy, from the point of view, not so much of the brahmin, as
of the rajput. The two points of view naturally differ very much.
Priest and noble in India have always worked very well together so
long as the question at issue did not touch their own rival claims
as against one another. When it did-and it did so especially during
the period referred to-the harmony, as will be evident from the
following pages, was not so great. Contents: The Kings; The Clans
and Nations; The Village; Social Grades; In the Town; Economic
Conditions; Writing-The Beginnings; Writing-Its Development;
Language and Literature; Literature; The Jataka Book;
Religion-Animism; Religion-The Brahmin Position; Chandragupta;
Asoka; and Kanishka. See other titles by this author available from
