"This is certainly the best book covering the full history of Indian Art. It is accessible but at the same time raises important issues and has the distinct advantage of comprehensive coverage..."—Frederick Asher, Department of Art History, University of Minnesota

"A compact volume that is beautifully illustrated, delightfully written and well suited to those approaching Indian art for the first time."—The Times Higher Education Supplement

On the Art & Ideas series

"Art & Ideas has broken new ground in making accessible authoritative views on periods, movements and concepts in art. As a series it represents a real advance in publishing."—Sir Nicholas Serota, Director, Tate London

"The format is wonderful and offers what had long been missing in academic studies: usable manuals for specific themes or periods... I am definitely not alone in welcoming Art & Ideas as a precious set of teaching tools."—Joachim Pissarro, Yale University

"Phaidon's series may prove to be the pick of the crop. It boasts expert but undogmatic texts and a wealth of illustrations."—The Sunday Telegraph
