These three volumes Ashoka: The Wild Prince, Book I, Ashoka: The Wise Ruler, Book II and Ashoka: The World s Great Teacher, Book III are now brought together and presented in this single volume Ashoka The Great. The book is an exhilarating, spiritually edifying and deeply Moving story of one of India s greatest emperors. It recreates the life and times of the Mauryas with an authenticity that is remarkable. The book presents a plausible vision of the past balanced by captivating story. It is said that a great book if it is to endure cannot do without profound ideas.
