On Alexander's Track To The Indus
Stein not only describes the campaigns of the Great Conqueror Alexander in his book but also very intricately deal with the history and culture of each region he visited, and records the conditions prevalent at the time of these studies.
Title: On Alexander'S Track To The Indus
Author: Sir Aurel Stein
Number of Pages: 144 + 66
The book is a good depiction of places that Alexander the great and his troops apparently treaded upon while in the subcontinent.
Much must have changed in the centry that proceeded after thebook was written. This book is a good snapshot in time at the turn of the twentieth century.
Additionally, it also provide witness to the buddhist infrastructure that was scatterd in this part of the world. Most of the already crumbling structures have now disappeared.
Such an amazing book on history
Very good service
