In A Cultural History of India, first published in 1975, A.L. Basham brought together scholars from across the globe to provide international viewpoints on the rich cultural heritage of India. With contributors from across the world covering a wide array of topics including religion, philosophy, social organization, literature, art, architecture, music, and science, the book presented a comprehensive survey of India's rich cultural heritage.

Key chapters cover the Indus civilization, Ashokan India and the Gupta Age, ancient Indian religions, philosophy, classical literature, early art and architecture, music, Muslim architecture in India, Islam, Sikhism, the nationalist movement, and modern Indian literature, and are complemented by extensive visuals, making for an informative and interesting read.
