India - a Portrait



One of this century’s greatest surprises has been the economic and
social revolution in India. A country long characterized by such
adjectives as ‘timeless’, ‘spiritual’ and ‘backward’ is now viewed
through a new set of clichés: ‘hi-tech’, ‘materialistic’, ‘go-getting’.
But what is the real nature of this rapid change, and what are its
roots? Patrick French has spent much of his life engaged with India,
and his landmark new book is filled with the qualities that have won his
writing exceptional praise: his love of narrative, sympathy for the
individual’s experience, scepticism about official claims, and relish
for the mayhem of political life. His account of Indian independence,
Liberty or Death, is an acclaimed bestseller. Now he gives us an
encompassing social, political and economic history of India from
partition to the present day. Examining the cultural foundations that
made India’s accelerated transformation from socialist economy to
capitalist powerhouse possible, French creates a vivid, surprising
picture of what it is like to live at a time when millions have pulled
themselves free of poverty – with fortunes made almost overnight – but
where violence, corruption and caste prejudice have equally been given
new outlets. He delves into Indian society and politics, including the
personal story of one of the most powerful women in the world, Sonia
Gandhi. And he travels the country’s regions to show how Nehru’s vision
of a democratic, secular India has continued to attempt – in the face of
conflict and setbacks – to hold this vast, implacably diverse nation
together. French has spoken to everyone from the nation’s political
leadership to Maoist revolutionaries and mafia dons, from chained quarry
workers to self-made billionaire entrepreneurs and technological
innovators. The result is a richly detailed, wide-ranging and hugely
rewarding portrait of India.
