Product description


“[A] revealing panorama of Indian politics...Avoiding clichéd notions of India as either South Asian super-tiger or eternal basketcase, Denyer's sharp-eyed reportage and analysis convey both the size of India's problems and the strength of efforts to remedy them.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Forthright, fair and frank reporting.” ―Kirkus

“[A]n accurate view...Denyer has reported well out of India.” ―Washington Post

“A riveting account not just cataloging the last decade's tribulations but also optimistic signs that ordinary citizens throughout the country are finding their voices, demanding change, and being heard...this book is important for scholars of Indian history and culture as well as general readers seeking understanding of recent events in that country.” ―Library Journal

“Mr. Denyer has doggedly covered many of the stories that have dominated India's headlines in recent years, and his thorough reporting is on display here.” ―Wall Street Journal

“Denyer offers a careful and thorough examination... he gives a rich and varied portrait of India...Rogue Elephant's take on Indian democracy is varied, complex, and fiercely independent, characterized by a dogged refusal to give in to common generalizations or the readymade interpretations of India's political parties. This approach allows Denyer to create an original and illuminating portrait.” ―Foreign Policy
