    Description
    A major new collection of essays by Ramachandra Guha, Democrats and Dissenters is a work of rigorous scholarship on topics of compelling contemporary interest, written with elegance and wit. The book covers a wide range of themes: from the varying national projects of India's neighbours to political debates within India itself, from the responsibilities of writers to the complex relationship between democracy and violence. It has essays critically assessing the work of Amartya Sen and Eric Hobsbawm, essays on the tragic predicament of tribals in India - who are, as Guha demonstrates, far worse off than Dalits or Muslims, yet get a fraction of the attention - and on the peculiar absence of a tradition of conservative intellectuals in India. Each essay takes up an important topic or an influential intellectual, as a window to explore major political and cultural debates in India and the world. Democrats and Dissenters is a book that is certain to be widely read, and even more widely discussed.

    Very Good

    The book would be much better to read if you take prior note of the point that Guha is a die hard Congress supporter.
    One just needs to apply his critique in context of all parties and governments which he has generally directed towards BJP.
    But ofcourse he is a great writer and this book is another example of that.

    Wonderful

    Ramachandra Guhu is undoubtedly the most prolific writer of our times, when it comes down to the subject of Modern India or even Modern Asia. If not for Guha, there probably isn't any history of post independent India

    Guha : Readers' Writer

    As usual, nice packaging and prompt delivery by Flipkart.

    The Book
    Have not read the book yet. As a regular reader of Guha - columns in different dailies and magazines and all of his books - this is going to be my next pick for reading for sure. Even by the looks it is so graceful and elegant. With "Guha" string attached it is going to be a sure page-turner from cover to cover. Will be reviewed soon and separately.

    Value-for-money

    For a reader of contempory Indian literature, this book is like a Bollywood flick which has awesome first half but looses little sheen after interval(2nd half of the book) but makes splendid comeback towards the climax.
