Produktinformationen

InhaltThe story of The Making of India begins in the seventeenth century, when a small seafaring island, one tenth the size of the Indian subcontinent, despatched sailing ships over 11,000 miles on a five-month trading journey in search of new opportunities. In the end they helped build a new nation. The sheer audacity and scale of such an endeavour, the courage and enterprise, have no parallel in world history. This book is the first to assess in a single volume almost all aspects of Britain's remarkable contribution in providing India with its lasting institutional and physical infrastructure, which continues to underpin the world's largest democracy in the twenty-first century.
ZusatztextAn equally wonderful and thought-provoking book that drips with complexity

KritikBracingly controversial ... I defy anyone with a modicum of open-mindedness not to read The Making Of India and concede, however grudgingly, that [the author] just might have a point Daily Mail
