This book another ranting on a theory of Aryan Invasion which has no literary, archaelogical or any other proof. All Indian scriptures, Buddhist, Jain, Brahmanical etc attest to an Indian origin of Aryans and Buddhism was Arya-Dharma par excellence. Due to their poor understanding of Indian civilization, Europeans should stop writing such books which obviously have racist and missionary overtones and are more political in nature than anything else. A waste of time.
