In evocative prose and with street-level reporting, Daniel Lak argues that India has become a global superpower because of its religion, caste, politics, and poverty, and not in spite of it. He looks presciently to the future, and concludes that the strength that democracy gives it means that India is much better positioned to sustain its newfound status than China, whose political system is sure to eventually hinder it. As an expert who has covered the region for the BBC for the last twelve years, Lak weaves together his substantive knowledge of Indian politics, economics, and culture with fascinating stories of everyday people. India Express incisively explores the most urgent challenges facing India in the 21st century: · The governance and development of the most religiously, culturally, and linguistically diverse population on the planet · Crushing poverty--with 300 million on less $2 a day--despite the rise of the largest middle class the world has ever known · Uncertain geopolitics including the parallel rise of China and civil wars in neighboring states and the increasingly unstable, nuclear-armed Pakistan · Corruption at all levels of government while the business sector becomes ever more globalized and attuned to international standards · Growing urbanization: three of the world's top fifteen cities in terms of population are already Indian and they are growing faster than most others · Inequality between different Hindu castes, sexes, regions and newly minted haves and have-nots

Vikas Swarup's spectacular debut novel opens in a jail cell in Mumbai, India, where Ram Mohammad Thomas is being held after correctly answering all twelve questions on India's biggest quiz show, Who Will Win a Billion? It is hard to believe that a poor orphan who has never read a newspaper or gone to school could win such a contest. But through a series of exhilarating tales Ram explains to his lawyer how episodes in his life gave him the answer to each question. Ram takes us on an amazing review of his own history -- from the day he was found as a baby in the clothes donation box of a Delhi church to his employment by a faded Bollywood star to his adventure with a security-crazed Australian army colonel to his career as an overly creative tour guide at the Taj Mahal. Swarup's Q & A is a beguiling blend of high comedy, drama, and romance that reveals how we know what we know -- not just about trivia, but about life itself. Cutting across humanity in all its squalor and glory, Vikas Swarup presents a kaleidoscopic vision of the struggle between good and evil -- and what happens when one boy has no other choice in life but to survive.

Is the term "postcolonial fiction" meaningful? Is there any such thing as a postcolonial literary aesthetic? Robert Fraser's contention in this thought-provoking book is that these questions can be answered in the affirmative only if postcoloniality is interpreted, less as a condition than as a development through six specified historical phases. As the penal "sentence" of imperialism is gradually lifted, he argues, successive types of syntactical "sentence" have come into play: colonial and postcolonial grammars, distinctive uses of person, tense, mood, and form.
