Reviews

The book under review is seen to be specially prepared for the first year students of the LL.B. Degree (Five year course). It is a project of the National Law School of India University in assocation with Bar Council of India Trust to meet the requirements of students for whom `History of India' is a prescribed subject for study. The students of law should be equipped with the awareness that present is the result of the past and the future has to be shaped based on the present. It could be seen that books on history follow the traditional method of presentation and cannot meet the needs of students of of law. In the book under review the author has adopted a particular method of treatment of the subject to meet the needs of law students.

On the whole the book is useful to students of law. The way of treatment of the subject in a lucid form should create interest for the student. The price fixed for the book is moderate. The book contains a subject index and chapterwise bibliography for ready reference.
