It discusses such issues as How far was the relatively bloodless nature of pre-British Indian warfare the product of stateless Indian society?

How far did technology determine the shape of warfare in India? and Did warfare in this period have a particular Indian nature and was it ritualistic? The book considers land warfare including sieges, naval warfare, the impact of horses, elephants and gunpowder, and the differences made by the arrival of Muslim rulers and by the influx of other foreign influences and techniques. The book concludes by arguing that standing professional armies supported by centralised bureaucratic states have been underemphasised in the history of India.
