This book provides a general survey of all inscriptional material--i.e. documents written in ink on surfaces like clay, wood, or skin, or carved in stone and metal, as well as seals--in the Indo-Aryan languages. This is a vast body of material, comprising several tens of thousands of documents over two millennia and a geography that extends not only over India, but much of the southeast, central, and other parts of Asia. This material also covers a wide range of languages, scripts, styles, and content. Salomon surveys the entire corpus of inscriptions. He presents the material in such a way as to make it accessible to both the specialist and non-specialist, with many insights for scholars working in epigraphical studies.
