Reviews

  • 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
