by Amartya Sen - £10.99 Penguin Books Ltd (2006)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780141012117 | ISBN 10: 0141012110
India is a hugely diverse country with many distinct pursuits, vastly different convictions, widely divergent customs and a feast of viewpoints. In this landmark book Amartya Sen argues that only by exploring its long, pioneering tradition of sceptical argument and cultural achievement can we truly understand contemporary India's place in the world.
"One of the most influential public thinkers of our time... Sen smashes quite a few stereotypes and places the idea of India and Indianness in its rightful, deserved context... This is a book that needed to have been written."
