"A splendid--and timely--book . . . Spirited, combative and insight-filled . . . Khilnani has woven a rich analysis of contemporary India and its evolution since independence." --Amartya Sen, The Times Literary Supplement"A masterful rebuttal to all cultural romantics and religious chauvinists . . . [A] splendid book about definitions of the Indian nation." --Ian Buruma, The New York Review of Books

"Khilnani writes with illuminating dexterity, wit and compassion, and India springs to life through his words." --Judith M. Brown, The New York Times Book Review"[A] short and brilliant book . . .
