    Description
    Pankaj Mishra's provocative account of how China, India and the Muslim World are remaking the world in their own image - shortlisted for the Orwell Prize 2013 SHORTLISTED FOR THE ORWELL PRIZE 2013 Viewed in the West as a time of self-confident progress, the Victorian period was experienced by Asians as a catastrophe. As the British gunned down the last heirs to the Mughal Empire or burned down the Summer Palace in Beijing, it was clear that for Asia to recover a new way of thinking was needed. Pankaj Mishra re-tells the history of the past two centuries, showing how a remarkable, disparate group of thinkers, journalists, radicals and charismatics emerged from the ruins of empire to create an unstoppable Asian renaissance, one whose ideas lie behind everything from the Chinese Communist Party to the Muslim Brotherhood, and have made our world what it is today. Reviews: 'Arrestingly original ... this penetrating and disquieting book should be on the reading list of anybody who wants to understand where we are today' John Gray, Independent 'A riveting account that makes new and illuminating connections ... deeply entertaining and deeply humane' Hisham Matar 'Fascinating ... a rich and genuinely thought-provoking book' Noel Malcolm, Sunday Telegraph 'Provocative, shaming and convincing' Michael Binyon, The Times 'Lively ... engaging ... retains the power to shock' Mark Mazower, Financial Times 'Subtle, erudite and entertaining' Economist, New Delhi About the author: Pankaj Mishra is the author of Butter Chicken in Ludiana, The Romantics, An End to Suffering and Temptations of the West. He writes principally for the Guardian, The New York Times, London Review of Books and New York Review of Books. He lives in London, Shimla and New York.

    MUST READ

    Book thoroughly covers the prominent enlightening figures of 20th century some of them are more like unsung hero. chapters dealing with middle east are very good and well researched.

    A great effort toward reconciliation and helps to understand the nation-in-making process of Asian countries.language is not very tough.
    Book is worth reading.

    Best in the market!

    A great book with a detailed historical account. i felt quite guilty reading this book casually (already started forgetting some facts that I learnt in this book) that I have started to taking notes while reading it the second time round.
