Further, I liked author's treatment of the history of major nations of Asia. Whatever limited history I was introduced in school was around Mughal empire, Britishers, Europe and America. There was limited or no coverage on Asia. This book gives detail overview of Asian history. Must read in case you are interested in Indian or Asian History.
He proves the two major contentious points: first, that the longer the British (or other European powers) ruled a part of Asia, the more backward it is today; and second that former Japanese colonies are the most prosperous parts of Asia today.
This book works out to about Rs1.66 per page - the cheapest wisdom on the market.
