6 Basham, AL The Wonder That Was India: A Survey of the History and Culture of the Indian Sub-Continent from the Coming of the Muslims
Fontana 1974 Papeback Very Good None issued 20cm 
review - it thoroughly deserves its reputation as a classic, holding up well after 53 years. In my experience with histories of India, you generally have two extremes: Ones written by Indian authors that so aggressively seek to discount earlier volumes' Western slant it comes across as "one-upsmanship", and the volumes written by Western authors that seek to apologize for earlier transgressions. A.L. Basham achieves a happy medium. Some of his language can be excused as indicative of the time in which he wrote the book, 7 years after the Partition, but otherwise he does a great job of covering Indian history up to the High Middle Ages with thoroughness and equanimity. His writing is also very engaging. 572pp with 3 photo mid sections

Penguin (Allen Lane) 2005 Papeback Excellent None issued 23.5cm 
name on 1st p > GBks review > "Essential reading ... Collapse [shows] that resilient societies are nimble ones, capable of long-term planning and of abandoning deeply entrenched but ultimately destructive core values and beliefs." "There are hopeful messages in Collapse. With Diamond's help, maybe we'll learn to see our problems a little more clearly before we chop down that last palm tree." "Extraordinarily panoramic ...Diamond's complex historical web of how human communities either master their environment or become victims of them ... takes a lifetime of research and, in normal English, leads the reader painstakingly where the media and intellectual journals have often refused to go." 575 clean well bound pp, photos mid section, weight about 1kg packed for post
