About this book
Subtitled, "Writings On Indian History, Culture & Identity". A dazzling new book about his native country by the Nobel Prize winning economist. Sen says that the understanding and use of this rich argumentative tradition are critically important for the success of India's democracy, the defence of its secular politics, the removal of inequalities related to class, caste, gender and community, and the pursuit of sub-continental peace. *Also appeared in May Buyer's Notes*
India is an immensely diverse country with many distinct pursuits, vastly different convictions, widely divergent customs and a veritable feast of viewpoints. This title brings together an illuminating selection of writings on contemporary India.
