A thought-provoking statement on the psychology and culture of colonialism in recent years.
Over the last 150 years the impact of West on eastern societies has been felt through political, cultural and economic domination. Now, it seems, the tide has begun to turn. Ashish Nandy explores the way in which the East resisted the West even during the period of British rule in India.
Ashish Nandy, internationally renowned for his writings on the psychology of culture, describes in an utterly absorbing fashion, how Gandhi chose to mould opposition to the life-style, values and psychology of imperialism.
