Book Description
It was on his third visit to India, prompted by the Emergency of 1975, that Naipaul came to write India: A Wounded Civilization. In this work Naipaul caste a more analytical eye than before over Indian attitudes, while recapitulating and probing the feeling previously aroused in him by this vast, mysterious and agonized continent. What he saw and heard on this visit – evoked so superbly and vividly in these pages – reinforced in him a conviction that India, wounded by many centuries of foreign rule, has not yet found an ideology of regeneration. A work of fierce candour and precision, it is also a generous description of one man’s complicated relationship with the country of his acestors.
