About this Unit
In 2010 this unit replaced by 101543 - India: Global Contexts. A survey of the history of India from early times to Independence, looking at key issues for understanding modern India. It introduces the ideological bases of Indian civilisation; the three great religious systems of Asia, Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam, and their related systems of social and political organisation. It focuses on the contest of history in colonial discourses; the uses of history in creating modern citizens and states. It offers material on the theme of Asian modernities.
