This analysis of India’s social and economic revolution is second to none. French creates a vivid, surprising picture of what it is like to live in the country at a time when millions have pulled themselves free of poverty – with fortunes made almost overnight – but where violence, corruption and caste prejudice have equally been given new outlets. India is a highly engaging and fascinating book.
