End of the Great Harappan Tradition

The End of the Great Harappan Tradition by Shereen Ratnagar

This fascinating book suggests alternatives to the 'environmental catastrophe' theories of Harappan civilizational collapse, with a discussion about the nature of the Harappan state and what its weaknesses might have been. The civilization is placed in a wider geographic setting to explore not just the internal factors but also those operating within the Bronze Age at large.
