Description

India and Indian ways of life in the new century are presented in this fresh and comprehensive overview. The one billion people populating this vast country represent hundreds of social groups and speak more than 100 different languages. Henderson provides expert insight into a cross-section of society, including:

A Guide to pronunciation
Land, People and History
Religion
World View
Art and Literature
Landscape and Architecture
Food and Dress
Women, Marriage, and Family
Festivals and Leisure Activities
Music and Dance
Social Customs and Lifestyles

The volume focuses primarily on contemporary India, yet Henderson's narrative incorporates the culture's progression from the earliest civilization to the nuclear weapons debate. Numerous photos, a chronology, and a glossary complement the narrative.
