India: A wounded civilization

Naipaul, V.S.
ISBN: 0140048316Category:


Sold Out

Returning to India — the subject of his acclaimed An Area of Darkness — in 1975, at the height of Indira Gandhi’s Emergency, V. S. Naipaul produced this concise masterpiece of journalism and cultural analysis, a vibrant, defiantly unsentimental portrait of a society traumatized by repeated foreign invasions and immured in a mythic vision of its past. Drawing on novels, news reports, and political memoirs — but most of all on his conversations with ordinary Indians, from princes to engineers to feudal village autocrats — Naipaul captures India’s manifold complexities.
