Vishnu's Crowded Temple: India Since the Great Rebellion

Front Cover
Penguin Books Limited, May 29, 2008 - History - 576 pages
There can be few more discussed countries in the world today than India. From being a seemingly closed off, economically stagnant part of Asia, with intractable problems of poverty and population, India has in a short space of time reached an astonishing level of growth, taking with China the lion's share of the benefits from post-Cold War globalization. In VISHNU'S CROWDED TEMPLE, Maria Misra has written the essential history to allow us to understand this extraordinary transformation.
