Publisher's Summary

India was home to one of the oldest, most sophisticated, and widespread civilizations of the ancient world. People always assume that the ancient people of a country resembled the present day inhabitants. In a place like India where people can have the blackest or palest of complexions which color is original to the land? Muller uses linguistic distribution, archaeology, oral tradition, ancient text translations, and art to determine who the builders of that great civilization were and what happened to them. Muller also explains how Hinduism came to have Gods of black complexion when dark skin is not looked upon positively.
