But his brave experiment ended in tragedy and his name was cleansed from the record so effecively that he was forgotten for almost two thousand years. Only a few mysterious stone monuments and inscriptions survived, and the story of how these keystones to the past were discovered and deciphered is every bit as remarkable as their author himself. An important sotry of colonical scholarly sleuthing...

Independent A labour of love and notable scholarship, Charles Allen's Ashoka is a fitting testament to a forgotten epic of discovery... All who relish India's antiquity should read this book John Keay.
