"[a] wonderfully eloquent and informative new book ... Robinson examines by chapter every aspect of this deliciously intriguing civilisation, from religion, society, art, trade, and agriculture, to their origins, disappearance and rediscovery ... a comprehensive account of the Indus people, condensed into a highly accessible volume - and a very good read indeed.' -- Current World Archaeology 'Robinson creates a brilliant portrait of one of the world s most enigmatic early civilizations. In doing so, he crosses the boundaries between different academic disciplines with effortless panache and high learning. This succinct account of the Indus civilization, its script, religious beliefs, and its complex inheritance, places a vigorous, urban society in its rightful historical context. Everyone interested in ancient civilizations should read this eloquent, closely argued biography (it is nothing less) that brings the Indus people in from the historical shadows.' --Brian Fagan, author of The Great Warming and Elixir: A History of Water and Humankind.
