In a summary of his series called The Indus Age, Possehl (anthropology, U. of Pennsylvania), draws from a wide range of published and unpublished sources to review ancient India's earliest urban landscape, and begins to deal with the ideology of the Indus peoples. The study is aimed at a more general readership than his others on the subject. The Indus, or Harappan civilization flourished from about 2500 to about 1900 BC in Pakistan and western India. It developed social classes; craft and career specialists; writing; and long-distance trade with Mesopotamia, Central Asia, and even the countries at the mouth of the Red Sea. He looks beyond the decay of the cities about 1900 to the start of the Iron Age in about 1000. Illustrations include drawings of artifacts, house and settlement plans, and maps. Annotation c.
