From the Ruins of Empire PDF

Pankaj Mishra

Pankaj Mishras provocative account of how China, India and the Muslim World are remaking the world in their own image - shortlisted for the Orwell Prize 2013SHORTLISTED FOR THE ORWELL PRIZE 2013Viewed 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, IndependentA riveting account that makes new and illuminating connections ... deeply entertaining and deeply humane Hisham MatarFascinating ... a rich and genuinely thought-provoking book Noel Malcolm, Sunday TelegraphProvocative, shaming and convincing Michael Binyon, The TimesLively ... engaging ... retains the power to shock Mark Mazower, Financial Times Subtle, erudite and entertaining Economist, New DelhiAbout the author:Pankaj Mishra is the author of Butter Chicken in Ludiana , The Romantics , An End to Suffering and Temptations of the West .
