I have completed putting up the scanned chapters (not the whole book) from Prem Nath Bazaz’ The Role Of The Gita In Indian History. I will put up a link index soon. Til then scroll down.
The quality of the scanned text is not good, but the process of putting the result on WordPress is useful to homogenize it a little. The point of the exercise was therefore not to produce a final result for you the reader, but to begin getting the pages in shape, so sorry for the poor quality. I plan to repair what is there, and then make them webpages when time permits. In fact, you can get the point of this underground text clearly enough from the text as is, from a rare book from someone with the nerve to dig for some facts, perhaps in the process producing his own myths. A strange book.
You might be wary of this book, then, but you will be wary of the Gita from now on, that much is clear.
This interpretation is open to possible objections, but it is unique in cutting through the myths, and leaving a question with a demand: what is the real history of Indian religion? And how can we demand of historians to start doing some real research here.
