I am from India and I think the author did a superb job of an outsider's depiction of India. It's dark, it's gritty, it's real. This book deserves to be in your bookshelf (after of course you have read it!!)

Didn't know he was a great journalist. From reading all his other books I knew he's a top notch narrative historian and travelogue writer. This book gives you a deeper understanding of Indian society in the 90s, which is not much different today. If you are interested in Dalrymple or late 20th Cent. India you can't go wrong.

Dalrymple is a fine writer; here he talks about some of the problems currently facing his beloved India. It's at times frightening, but it's a very fine book, like all of his.
