Product Description Review 'Keay's excellent new book on the modern history of South Asia plunges the reader head first into some wildly swirling currents â€¦ His work is descriptive, panoramic, a large-scale survey of titanic struggles and the extraordinary survival of democracies' Spectator 'This absorbing, important history of South Asia over the six decades since British India was partitioned is the first time a book has been written on the history of this region as a whole' Independent 'A manifest triumph' Literary Review From the reviews of 'India: A History' 'It is hard to imagine anyone succeeding more gracefully in producing a balanced overview than John Keay has done in "India"â€¦ a book that is as fluent and readable as it is up-to-date and impartial. Hardly a page passes without some fascinating nugget or surprising fact' William Dalrymple, Guardian 'Certainly the most balanced and lucid historyâ€¦ his passion for India shines through and illuminates every pageâ€¦ puts Keay in the front rank of Indian historiographers.' Charles Allen, Spectator 'Keay's astute commentary on the development of Indian history is a delightâ€¦ one of the best general studies of the subcontinent.' Andrew Lycett, Sunday Times About the Author John Keay is a British writer and journalist. He has authored many books on the Indian subcontinent like Into India, Where Men And Mountains Meet: The Explorers Of The Western Himalayas and India Discovered: The Achievement Of The British Raj.
