In the People's History of India series, the second monograph is titled "The Indus Civilization" and was written by Irfan Habib. It picks up the narrative where the previous book, Prehistory, left off and continues the story. The civilization of the Indus valley serves as this text's primary organizing principle. In addition, contemporary and later cultures up to approximately 1500 B.C. are covered, as well as the development of the principal language families spoken in India at the time.
