India: A Mosaic

Robert Silvers

India: a mosaic of peoples, religions, cultures and climates, where ancient traditions and bustling modernity exist side by side. In this volume, writers offer penetrating insights into the complexities of the sub-continent – the legacy of Empire and Partition, secularism, democracy, life in Benares and Bombay, and the volatile intersection of history, politics and culture. This book includes a unique compact disc presenting a remarkable collection of Indian music.
