1 Robert W. Stern
Changing India (2nd edition)
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2003; 052154081X / 9780521540810; Second Edition; Paperback; New; 
The revised edition of Robert Stern’s book brings India’s story up to date. Since its original publication in 1993, much has altered and yet central to the author’s argument remains his belief in the remarkable continuity and vitality of India’s social systems and its resilience in the face of change. This is a colourful, readable and comprehensive introduction to modern India. In a journey through its family households and villages, the author explains its long-lived and little understood caste and class systems, its venerable faiths and extraordinary ethnic diversity, its history as ‘the jewel in the crown’ of British imperialism and its post-Independence career as a major agricultural and industrial nation. While paradoxes abound in an India which is constantly transforming, Stern demonstrates how and why it remains the largest and most enduring democracy in the developing world.
