Review

"The product of such a great mind at the peak of its power, "The Argumentative Indian" is one of the most stimulating books about India to be written for years."--William Dalrymple, "The Times" (London)
"This is a book that needed to have been written. . . . It would be no surprise if it were to become as defining and influential a work as Edward Said's "Orientalism.""--Soumya Bhattacharya, "The Observer" (London)
"An intellectual tour de force from an economist who can lay equal claim to the designations of sociologist, historian, political analyst, and moral philosopher."--Shashi Tharoor, "The Washington Post"
"Masterfully tying Indian concerns to broader social and philosophical questions, Sen addresses the many aspects of Indian identity."--"Library Journal"
