The Quest for the Origins of Vedic Culture: The Indo-Aryan Migration Debate

封面
Oxford University Press, 2001年9月6日 - 416 頁
Western scholars have argued that Indian civilization was the joint product of an invading Indo-European people--the "Indo-Aryans"--and indigenous non-Indo European peoples. Although Indian scholars reject this European reconstruction of their country's history, Western scholarship gives little heed to their argument. In this book, Edwin Bryant explores the nature and origins of this fascinating debate.
