The non linear structure can leave one confused and having to relook earlier chapters to pick up the thread. It's not history; with social comment and financial insights thrilling the writer. The conclusions drawn would have been better left for the reader to realise.
But kudos for this massive effort, in what is definitely a first to look at the continent as one entity.
The book is still worth reading because there are many original insights that uncover the real motives of European Colonial powers, how Japan's rule over Taiwan and Korea was different, follies of Pandit Nehru, and many others. Just that you have to plow through dense pages to find nuggets.
While a scholarly critique would find many flaws in the arguments (I was surprised at the author brushing off Manusmriti in one line saying that it's the interpretation of scholars that is wrong and not the book itself. That is not what B.R.Ambedkar says about Manusmriti), the author does have first hand experience of the Asian region of over two decades which lends credibility to his arguments.
