An preface to the Study of Indian History is a classic work of Indian historiography by Damodar Dharmananda Kosambi first published in 1956.

Through this book Kosambi revolutionised Indian historiography with his realistic and scientific approach. He understood history in terms of the dynamics of socio- profitable conformations rather than just a chronological history of” occurrences” or the feats of a many great men – lords, soldiers or saints. In the veritably first paragraph of his classic work, An preface to the Study of Indian History, he gives an sapience into his methodology as a prelude to his life work on ancient Indian history

” The light- hearted snicker’ India has had some occurrences, but no history’ is used to justify lack of study, grasp, intelligence on the part of foreign pens about India’s history. The considerations that follow will prove that it’s precisely the occurrences — lists of dynasties and lords, tales of war and battle seasoned with yarn, which fill academy textbooks — that are missing from Indian records. Then, for the first time, we’ve to reconstruct a history without occurrences, which means that it can not be the same type of history as in the European tradition

Contents:

Science as the cognition of necessity was inharmonious with brahmin asseveration upon dogma and authority. The incompatibility grew with the practice of forging or rewriting sacred workshop to order. ”

— From An preface to the Study of Indian History- compass and styles

According to A.L. Basham,” An preface to the Study of Indian History is in numerous felicitations an time making work, containing brilliantly original ideas on nearly every runner; if it contains crimes and paddings, if now and also its author attempts to force his data into a rather dogmatic pattern, this doesn’t appreciably lessen the significance of this veritably instigative book, which has stimulated the study of thousands of scholars throughout the world.
