Online Books on History by D. D. Kosambi, the Mathematician

One can access the classic books authored by the Indian Mathematician D. D. Kosambi on line.

The following books can be accessed on an Indian version of Guttenberg project run by an individual (Arvind Gupta, the Child toy maker from IIT).

Indian Numismatics

Introduction to the Study of Indian History

History and Society, Problems and Interpretations

Culture and Civilization of Ancient India

Myth and Reality

Combined Methods in Indology and Other Writings

Kosambi was a mathematician. However, his book titled Introduction to the Study of Indian History laid the road for the Marxian historiography on Indian history. A related observation and comment had been made in my earlier post.
