Un-illuminating basic work of Indian History
on 14 July 2000
Sunil Khilnani has written a book that will interest only the amateur reader of Indian history. There is not one shred of primary data presented and the book is not structured around an argument. One almost wonders why Dr Khilnani wasted his and our time in writing a work that simply could not please an intelligent reader, let alone a historian of South Asia.
