Britannica Guide to India : An ancient culture and a new economic power in the world
In the sixty years since independence, India has transformed itself into a modern nation. With a population of more than 1.1 billion, it is both the world's largest democratic country and fastest growing economy. It has hundreds of major and minor languages and over 166 million mobile phone users.
Charting the many faces of India from cuisine to Bollywood, as well as the key sites to visit and the major works of Indian philosophy, the Britannica Guide is comprehensive, up-to-date, and revealing. This guide covers over 10,000 years of history, diverse cultures, art, music, architecture, religions, and literature--and looks at the future of India as one of the leading economic powers in the world.
