From Seller/Antiquarian
Literary Collections, India: From Midnight to the Millennium and Beyond is an eloquent argument for the importance of India to the future of the industrialized world. Shashi Tharoor shows compellingly that India stands at the intersection of the most significant questions facing the world today. If democracy leads to inefficient political infighting, should it be sacrificed in the interest of economic well-being? Does religious fundamentalism provide a way for countries in the developing world to assert their identity in the face of Western hegemony, or is there a case for pluralism and diversity amid cultural and religious traditions? Does the entry of Western consumer goods threaten a country's economic self-sufficiency, and is protectionism the only guarantee of independence? The answers to such questions will determine what the nature of our world is in the twenty-first century. And since Indians account for almost one-sixth of the world's population today, their choices will resonate throughout the globe. Shashi Tharoor deals with this vast theme in a work of remarkable depth and startling originality, combining elements of political scholarship, personal reflection, memoir, fiction, and polemic, all illuminated in vivid and compelling prose. eBook

From Seller/Antiquarian
A panoramic insider's look at the road ahead for the world's largest democracy. This is a time of unprecedented change in India. Narendra Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party dominate the political scene and are attempting to change the way Indians work, think, and pray. And there are signs that the nation is moving in directions that will benefit its people, with a resurgent economy and an expanding foreign policy presence. But simultaneously, there are serious concerns about the rise of majoritarianism and intolerance of free speech, and there appears to be no imminent end to corruption, violence against women, environmental degradation, or a host of other problems that India has struggled to overcome since its independence. What does the future hold? Is the promise of good times mere illusion? Have the democratic and humane values of India's founding fathers been forgotten? Are high-speed trains and missions to Mars overshadowing the need to achieve universal literacy, eradicate poverty, and provide food, shelter, and health care for all?Shashi Tharoor-one of India's most distinguished writers-attempts to answer these and other pressing questions and to demystify complex issues that have been presented by ongoing transformations of the nation. Balanced and illuminating, India Shastra is required reading for anyone wishing to understand India today.

This short biography examines a great figure of twentieth-century nationalism from the vantage point of the beginning of the twenty-first. Deftly weaving personal facets with historical happenings, it tells the fascinating story of Jawaharlal Nehru's life. Finely portrayed is the unremarkable youth who found his calling in politics and followed Gandhi into British jails; the aristocrat born to privilege who was moved by the plight of peasants because of his socialist convictions; the cosmopolitan who became the hero of the nationalist youth; the die-hard secularist who confronted Hindu mobs, trying to stop the partition violence; and the Prime Minister who desired to educate the poor, illiterate and idolizing Indian masses in democracy by his own personal example. The book also analyses the principal pillars of Nehru's legacy to India: democratic institution building, staunch pan-Indian secularism, socialist economics at home and a foreign policy of non-alignment. Tharoor sees the first two as having been indispensable to the survival of our pluralism, and non-alignment to preserving our self-respect, though socialist economics, he believes , was disastrous - boosting poverty, stagnation and widespread corruption. All of these, however, were integral to a vision of Indianness that is fundamentally contested today. Beautifully written and sparkling with fresh insights, full of anecdotes retold with a novelist's pen, this book offers us a reinterpretation of an extraordinary man and his times. 261 pp.
