2000: Reflections on the Arts in India
The arts reflect a society's deeply held values and aesthetic sensibilities. It is therefore necessary to periodically review the arts as an indicator of the broader developments in society and discern the direction in which they are heading. To greet the arrival of 2001, this volume invited more than a dozen scholars and intellectuals -- each as expert in his or her field -- to assess the current state of the world of art in India. The topics selected provide a wide range of issues and trends, problems and perspectives.
