Product description

Review

This is a book that needed to have been written. . . . It would be no surprise if it were to become as defining and influential a work as Edward Said's Orientalism. (Soumya Bhattacharya, The Observer (London))<br \><br \>The product of a great and playful mind at the peak of its power, The Argumentative Indian is the most stimulating and enjoyable book about the idea and identity of India to be written for years. (William Dalrymple, The New York Review of Books) --Various

An intellectual tour de force from an economist who can lay equal claim to the designations of sociologist, historian, political analyst, and moral philosopher . . . Breathtaking in its range and scholarly eclecticism. --(Shashi Tharoor, The Washington Post Book World)

Masterfully tying Indian concerns to broader social and philosophical questions, Sen addresses the many aspects of Indian identity. --(Library Journal)
