"With ease and economy, this small volume pulls together a wide For decades, schoolbooks have taught that Sumer was the cradle of civilization. conventional scholarship has also held that Aryan civilization came to India by way of invasions from the north. In Search of the Cradle of Civilization: New Light on Ancient India is a ground-breaking book wherein three renowned scholars show that there was no "Aryan invasion", and that India, not Sumer, was the cradle of civilized humanity.

It powerfully reminds us that knowledge and understanding can be lost as well as gained, and that the modern world's vaunted technological "progress" may be an aberration of a deeper evolutionary trend in which we appear as essentially spiritual beings in a spiritual universe. The issue of the true "cradle of civilization" is of far more than academic importance; it is at the heart of our collective understanding of our roots and our apparent destiny. This is a tremendously important book -- and "a good read" as well. Feuerstein,. Kak, and Frawley have performed a magnificent service toward our understanding of ourselves. I have unqualified praise for this important scholarly contribution.' -Willis Harman, President, Institute of Noetic Sciences
