"The author well utilize an enormous amount of recent data to discuss various elements of Indian culture and society as well as the "developmental processes" (urbanization, agricultural and industrial development, planning and foreign trade) of that nation. The volume will serve as an excellent reference book...Useful selected bibliography."- Choice "It is an excellent modern introduction for the student or general reader; the cultural insights could not, I think, have come from a foreign geographer, and maybe the perspective might not have been attainable from within India."- A.T.A. Learmonth, formerly Professor of Geography, The Open University, England co-author of the classic study India and Pakistan "The book is... very well-produced, with clear maps and very readable prose."- Joseph Schwartzberg, University of Minnesota, author of A Historical Atlas of South Asia
