Comment: PROFESSIONAL SELLER SHIPPING TOP QUALITY BOOKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE Well-loved but cared for, and still very readable. The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability. Shipped from the heart of the British countryside this book will leave our library within a day or two of your order and be with you shortly thereafter.

Product description


IN SPITE OF THE GODS is some way ahead of the game. Luce is a highly perceptive and intelligent writer and, unusually, he understands how India works. (SUNDAY TIMES)

Luce delivers genuine insight and revealing observations among the exhaustive facts, interviews and history (METRO)

Engrossing... Instead of standing loftily above the action, Luce gets in among the people to reveal the results of economic policy at street level... A wonderfully engaging portrait of India (DAILY TELEGRAPH)

A brilliant, bracingly uncondescending introduction to the new India in its many-layered modernity, written with perceptiveness, humour and respect (SCOTSMAN)

Book Description

MAXIMUM CITY meets A MILLION MUTINIES NOW -- the definitive book on modern India by the ex-South Asia correspondent for the Financial Times.
