The First Spring

(2011)
The Golden Age of India
A non fiction book by

 
For about a thousand years-from around 500 BCE to 500 CE - India witnessed a golden age, its first spring. During this period the country was economically prosperous, saw the rise of Buddhism and Jainism, as well as major advances in astronomy, medicine, philosophy and literature. In Part One of this riveting and elegantly written history, Abraham Eraly details the political, economic and social history of the thousand years-the rise of dynasties such as the Guptas in the north and the Pallavas and Cholas in the south, the flowering of court life and courtly culture, the growth of highly sophisticated urban centres, the advances in agriculture and the rise of trade.
