About the Book:

Alberuni`s India is not a polemical but a simple historic record of facts during the period (997-1030) of Sultan Mahmud of Ghazani. Through his literary history of India, Alberuni detailed out contemporary chronicles of India`s intellectual development, religious understanding and its philosophy and astrology - astronomy, both according to the Greek and Hindu system, as he was a master of these disciplines. He also devoted his research into the realm of sciences of physics, mathematics, chemistry. The principal objective of his writing about India was to acquaint the readers about India and its culture, customs, law, manners and civilization by comparing them with the theories of ancient Greece. Alberuni was also a Physical Science scholar and worked on material science, optics, mechanics, minerology, geology and he did not accept traditions of former ages as he wanted to understand them and to criticise them. His professional zeal and the principle of learning enabled him to leave an account of India which was considered to be the best of its kind.<-p>
