Format: Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I sat down "for five minutes" with the book when it first arrived and found myself still sitting down with it two hours later. It is a book to dip into and then go off on a journey. The book is full of history, anecdotes, and quite a few jokes. A very enjoyable read. It is an alphabetical dictionary, calling itself "The Definitive Glossary of British India", but it has words and phrases that have come into our language from all over Asia. What astounds me is that many of the words came into English usage in the 1300's and 1400's. There are Asian words we started using in the 10th Century, well before British India. An utterly fascinating book that has not ceased to amaze me since it arrived. Love it!
