  • Description

    From the Ruins of Empire: The Revolt against the West and the Remaking of Asia is an intriguing record of the days of anti-Imperialism and the wave of intellectual era in the eastern countries that ascended due to an outsized sect of men with ideas of freedom.

    Summary of the book

    While the West opined that revival of the Asian and other eastern countries from the British rule would be an arduous course, a ceaseless upsurge of intellect, liberalism and struggle for freedom amongst the ruled populations soared. Different countries lost differently to the Imperial decree of supremacy, including the mighty fall of the Mughals, the Ottomans, the rulers in Beijing and the enormous China. This has led to the formation of independent countries governing themselves and rising, proving the ruin that was prophesied wrong. The book, hence, provides a deep insight of this eon of History.

    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.

    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.
