As the essays in this collection testify, even half a century after his death in 1966, D D Kosambi continues to be provocative, instructive, and contemporary. Many of the arguments that he makes in his two didactic and hitherto unpublished essays are insightful and incisive, and display, in a new setting, the range of his scholarship and the breadth of his interests. The other essays that are included here are his passionate advocacy of solar energy, and his posthumously published autobiographical essay that outlines his credo, and that lends its title to the book.
