9780140285314: Vishnus Crowded Temple: India Since The Great Rebellion

There can be few more discussed countries in the world today than India. From being a seemingly closed off, economically stagnant part of Asia, with intractable problems of poverty and population, India has in a short space of time reached an astonishing level of growth, taking with China the lion's share of the benefits from post-Cold War globalization. In "Vishnu's Crowded Temple", Maria Misra has written the essential history to allow us to understand this extraordinary transformation.

About the Author:

Maria Misra is Lecturer in Modern History at Oxford University and a Fellow of Keble College Oxford. She presented a television series, called An Indian Affair, which was broadcast on Channel 4 and is the author of Business, Race and Politics in British India.

Review:

"An accessible account of the history of India that brings the story right up to date. . . . To write a history in one volume on how modern India has evolved is a daunting task but one Misra has skillfully executed." -- Talat Ahmed "BBC History Magazine" (11/04/2007)
