Description Temptations of the West de Pankaj Mishra:

A "New York Times Book Review" Editors' ChoiceIn "Temptations of the West, " Pankaj Mishra b1000rings literary authority and political insight to bear on journeys through South Asia, and considers the pressures of Western-style modernity and prosperity on the region. Beginning in India, his examination takes him from the realities of Bollywood stardom, to the history of Jawaharlal Nehru's post-independence politics. In Kashmir, he reports on the brutal massacre of thirty-five Sikhs, and its intriguing local aftermath. And in Tibet, he exquisitely parses the situation whereby the atheist Chinese government has discovered that Tibetan Buddhism can be "packaged and sold to tourists." "Temptations of the West" is essential reading about a conflicted and rapidly changing region of the world. Pankaj Mishra is the author of the novel "The Romantics, " and "An End to Suffering." His writing frequently appears in the "The New York Review of Books, Granta, "and London's "Times Literary Supplement." He lives in London and India.
