Harappan Archaeology : Early State Perspectives presents some perspectives on the Indus Valley Civilisation from the viewpoint of the working of a state. It deals with various aspects like mobilisation of labour organisation of production overseas trade and management of scarce water resources by rulers in the Harappan culture of India and Pakistan. It takes up the productivity of the culture evidence for warfare and the hand of the state behind certain kinds of settlement morphology and artefactual equipment. It argues that it was elite intervention and management that ensured floodwater supplies at Dholavira and urban sanitation at Mohenjadaro. It also looks into the reasons for the end of the civilisation. The text is supported by numerous illustrations that include maps and photographs of excavated findings at sites.
