The 4 volumes are a detailed compilation by the authors on foreign accounts from 5 Century BCE to 19th Century CE .

An account of the grandeur of ancient India as perceived by her foreign visitors from hoary times and their wonder at her rich philosophical efflorescence and material abundance. The foreigners Marvel at the deep spiritual convictions that allowed yogis and widows to ascend a burning Pyre without murmur; the social harmony of myriad tribes and castes; and above all, the common culture and love of justice permeating and binding all in seamless unity.

Vol.1-This uninhibited intellectual and spiritual exploration of India’s Sanskritic or Indic culture ended abruptly with the rise of Islam in Arabia in the seventh century and its outward thrust into Europe, North Africa, central Asia and the Indian sub-continent, where it fought to establish political and religious supremacy. Possibly the last Buddhist monk to take the land route to India was the Korean pilgrim hye ch’o, who arrived as the armies of Islam began cutting through central Asia

Vol.2-This volume confines itself to European writings of sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Vol.3-The age of Arab travellers; geographers; merchants and historians commenced with the Islamic ascendancy.

Vol.4-The rise of Christianity pushed Europe into a cocoon.
