Synopsis: Just 60 years after winning independence from British rule, India's economy is booming and the nation is fast becoming a leading global power. With a population of a billion people, India's society is as varied as its awe-inspiring landscape. Home to a dizzying array of languages, ethnic groups, beliefs, and lifestyles, India can seem overwhelming in its complexity. India takes the lid off this cultural melting pot, showing how past events have shaped this diverse but unified nation, where tradition and modernity successfully coexist. 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.

From Booklist: India is a land of extraordinary beauty, a perpetually metamorphosing place with a dramatic 5,000-year history and a population of more than one billion people belonging to diverse ethnicities and traditions. What better means to gain a fix on the country than a concisely yet informatively narrated and gorgeously colorful pictorial survey? The tour begins with the subcontinent’s grand and mysterious vistas––the Himalayas, the immense Thar Desert of Rajasthan, the Deccan Plateau, sacred rivers, and magnificent beaches. A parade of artifacts and artworks, quotes from sacred texts and literary works, and photographs of historic places, people, and architectural treasures follows, tracking successive waves of migration, invasion, and conquest that enriched and complicated the cultural matrix as religions blossomed, empires rose and fell, and India became a modern global power. To provide a more personal perspective, 14 individuals (a Hindu priest, a schoolchild, a tribeswoman, a train driver, among them) are portrayed, each a portal into a fascinating, many-faceted world. --Donna Seaman
