Cosmo Publications is pleased to announce the publication of this classic Series of Indian history. These books are authentic documents from the past that are as valid and as useful today as when they were written, or even more so. These are books that have come to acquire a stature which was not apparent when they were published. Edited by the leading Indologist of his time – W. W. Hunter – the titles in this series reflect some of the best biographies ever attempted. Mr. Hunter indeed made sure that the task of writing the individual title was entrusted to the most suitable person as is amply reflected by the choice of the authors for the purpose. That the titles are indeed classics is clearly demonstrated by some of the reviews we have included here.

Reviews:
‘No one is better suited than Vincent Smith to write on Asoka, and he has performed his task with distinct success. The whole narrative is, like everything Vincent Smith writes, clear and full of vigour.’- Yorkshire Post.
‘Vincent Smith treats his subject skilfully and attractively, and his biography of Asoka worthily sustains the high reputation of the Series in which it appears’.—The Times.

‘This monograph is entitled to rank with the best of the Series, the compiler having dealt capably and even brilliantly with his materials’.— English Mail.
