I bought this book for a friend, and he was most impressed by it. The way the poetry and Herbert's life were put into context particularly attracted him. First class.


An Uncertain Glory: India and its Contradictions
An Uncertain Glory: India and its Contradictions
by Jean Dreze
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.83

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this !, 18 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book gives you the latest figures about what's happening in India - it's not all shopping malls and affluent middle classes. It doesn't pull punches, either. It's not the easiest of reads, being rather full of statistics, but it's reliable and very well informed. It would do nicely as an answer to those who say we don't need to help countries like India because they have good GDP growth figures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Operation Snakebite, 30 April 2009
Stephen Grey's book gives an excellent, sympathetic impression of what it is like to be at the 'sharp end' of operations in Afghanistan - and a severely critical view of Kharzai's government ! It's a rattling good read - and has excellent maps and graphics to explain the complications of modern warfare. If you want to find out what it's like to be a soldier in Afghanistan, with all its frustrations, then this is the book for you.
