La description:

In 1975, at the height of Indira Gandhi’s Emergency, V. S. Naipaul returned to India, the country his ancestors had left one hundred years before. Out of that journey he produced this concise masterpiece of journalism and cultural analysis, a vibrant, defiantly unsentimental portrait of a society traumatized by repeated foreign invasions and immured in a mythic vision of its past. Drawing on novels, news reports, and political memoirs — but most of all on his conversations with ordinary Indians, from princes to engineers and feudal village autocrats — Naipaul captures India’s manifold complexities. Reports on a recent trip to India, revealing the underlying problems of that troubled and frightening country.
