The Ancient Indus: Urbanism, Economy, and Society

Exiting new finds and deductions from Dr. Wright's work on lesser Harappan towns and villages along the Beas River.

"Wright provides a comprehensive and compelling account of the Indus civilization of ancient Pakistan and India. Although she does not neglect material culture, her focus is on the interconnections among climate, geography, agriculture, pastoralism, craft specialization, political economy, internal exchange, trade, urbanism, and ideology that characterize the Indus civilization and help explain its origins, maturation, and decline. Highly recommended." -Choice
