India After Gandhi
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungBorn against a background of privation and civil war, divided along lines of caste, class, language and religion, independent India emerged, somehow, as a united and democratic country. Ramachandra Guha's hugely acclaimed book tells the full story - the pain and the struggle, the humiliations and the glories - of the world's largest and least likely democracy. Massively researched and elegantly written, INDIA AFTER GANDHI is a remarkable account of India's rebirth, and a work already hailed as a masterpiece of single volume history.
PortraitRamachandra Guha's books cover a wide range of themes: they include a global history of environmentalism, a biography of an anthropologist-activist, a social history of Indian cricket, and a social history of Himalayan peasants. His entire career, he says, seems in retrospect to have been an extended (and painful) preparation for the writing of India After Gandhi.
