Home to a dizzying array of languages, ethnic groups, beliefs, and lifestyles, India can seem overwhelming in its complexity.

Through stunning photography and insightful text, "India" offers an eye-opening, thought-provoking, and authoritative visual guide to one of the world's most exciting and vibrant nations. The book is organized into six distinct sections. Landscape - India's Horizons takes a visual journey through India's diverse topography to all four corners of this vast land. History- The Story of India charts India's past and present in the form of a visual timeline from the first flourishings of Indus valley civilization to the present day, highlighting key events, figures, and inventions along the way. People - A Day in the Life reveals what life is like in India today through photographic interviews with individuals from all walks of society and from both rural and urban areas. This chapter also includes specially photographed collections of Indian objects and products, from food to textiles.
