A Portrait


One of this century's greatest surprises has been the economic and social revolution in India. What is the real nature of this rapid change, and where are its roots?

India takes the reader on an extraordinary journey, geographically from the remote Buddhist north to the tropical far south and socially from the new multi-millionaires to the many Indians still crushed by caste and poverty. This is the book for anyone wanting to get to grips with this extraordinary country - and French, with his in-depth knowledge and understanding of India, is perfectly placed to write it.
