Dr. Basham writes with admirable clarity and sturdy good sense. The early Indian attitude to life with its passionate delight in the senses, its gentle tolerance and kindly humanity, excites his enthusiasm and this is well transmitted through some exceptionally fine translations of poetry and prose. As a sympathetic and intelligent introduction to Indian culture, his book could hardly be bettered.
