Description
Second only to China in the magnitude of its economic miracle and second to none in its potential to shape the new century, India has for some time been undergoing a momentous transformation. In this panoramic book, the National Book Critics Circle Award–winning author of The World Is What It Is: The Authorized Biography of V.S. Naipaul chronicles that epic change, by telling the stories of individuals, from Maoist revolutionaries to Mafia dons, from chained quarry laborers to self-made billionaires. Combining an affection for India with a deep knowledge of its history, Patrick French examines India’s political, economic, and social complexities, revealing how a nation identified with some of the most wretched poverty on earth has simultaneously developed a culture of entrepreneurship.

"[Patrick] French mingles historical analysis with on-the-spot reportage, aiming to capture the country in all its teeming, volatile complexity. The result is rich, engaging and indeed multi-hued."—LA Times
