Quicklook at India

Book Description

India is destined to play a major role in shaping the 21st century. It is the second largest country by population. It is the largest democracy, a nuclear power and has the world's second largest army.

A land of great contrasts, it embraces many different peoples, languages and religions. Nowhere has older or deeper cultures, or so much diversity. World class technologies are emerging in a country still facing massive problems with basic infrastructure.

This short but comprehensive book covers the history, culture, politics and economics of India.
