India: A Wounded Civilization

Naipaul, V.S.

Description
THE SECOND BOOK IN V.S. NAIPAUL’S ACCLAIMED INDIAN TRILOGY In 1964 V.S. Naipaul published An Area of Darkness, his semi-autobiographical account of a year in India.

Two visits later, prompted by the Emergency of 1975, he came to write India: A Wounded Civilization. In this work he casts a more analytical eye than before over Indian attitudes, while recapitulating and further probing the feelings aroused in him by this vast, mysterious, and agonized country. What he saw and heard - evoked so superbly and vividly in these pages - reinforced in him a conviction that India, wounded by a thousand years of foreign rule, has not yet found an ideology of regeneration.

A work of fierce candour and precision, it is also a generous description of one man’s complicated relationship with the country of his ancestors. `A devastating work, but proof that a novelist of Naipaul’s stature can often define problems quicker and more effectively than a team of economists and other experts’ The Times `It is a long and angry stare at the obvious; it is humbling . .

. because it seems chasteningly right’ New Statesman `Brilliant’ Spectator
