Review:

A splendid - and timely - book ... Spirited, combative and insight-filled ... Khilnani has woven a rich analysis of contemporary India and its evolution since indepence. I am inclined to agree with [him] on the robustness and staying power of the secular idea of India (Amartya Sen Times Literary Supplement)

A masterful rebuttal to all cultural romantics and religious chauvinists ... [A] splendid book about definitions of the Indian nation (Ian Buruma New York Review of Books)

Especially brilliant is Khilnani's attempt to understand the changing nature of India by studying its urban constructs (Chitra Divakaruni Los Angeles Times)

About the Author:

Sunil Khilnani was born in Delhi and educated at Cambridge. He was a fellow at Christ's College, Cambridge, has taught politics at Birkbeck College, University of London and is now based at Johns Hopkins University in Washington, DC. He is writing a biography of Nehru for Penguin.
