This is the second edition of Madhyakaleen Bharat: Prashasan, Samaj evam Sanskriti [first edition published by Wisdom Prakashan, Allahabad in 2009], a textbook for UG and PG students of various Indian universities across northern region. This book is a narrative of medieval Indian history [8th to 13th century] from a new perspective which is a demand of UPSC and allied Civil services students.

‘Divided into 59 chapters Madhyakaleen Bharat by Neeraj Srivastavais paradoxically a slender text which takes the reader through the administrative, social and cultural developments in India’s history between later Gupta period and the climactic decades of the Delhi Sultanate.

‘The major strength of this book lies in the lucid presentation of factual information in a narrative style, which even most lay readers shall find accessible and comprehensible. Author has tried to steer clear of contentious issues, not by eluding them but by referring to the general range of interpretations available on the subject by well known scholars.

‘Unlike many other textbooks on the same period, this book has a pan-Indian focus as there is inclusion of eight relevant chapters on the history of south India. Besides, as added attraction is the smooth amalgamation of six chapters on the historiography of medieval India.

‘In times when authors are writing for other authors (not readers), when writing styles are becoming extremely complex and impenetrable, this book clearly emerges as a reader-oriented book. Dr. Srivastava’s long experience in providing guidance to students is clearly reflected in the style he has chosen to write.’

Satish Chandra’s Madhyakaleen Bharat is facts of history and a NCERT labeled textbook reissued by us. Neeraj Srivastav’s and Satish Chandra’s book   both are for the same market, but students/IAS aspirants don’t mind buying more than one book on this topic. Dr Srivastava’s book is a good addition to our Hindi title list, i.e. to have one more book on Madhyakaleen Bharat  by a young author.

Dr Neeraj Srivastava D.Litt. in History, taught in Ishwar Saran Degree college, Allahabad for over 10 years before he took voluntary retirement to open his IAS coaching institute named Itihas Bodh Centre in Allahabad, a well known coaching centre in UP.
