Modern South Asia - A Book Review




How much do you really know about Asian history? If you are like a lot people, that answer might be little to none. A great resource for you to have is Sugata Bose and Ayesha Jalal's Modern South Asia: History, Culture, Political Economy.

Within this academic book, you will discover much about the history of the different areas of Southern Asia. This book does not just take one area or one aspect. It tries to give an all encompassing view of the history where anyone could come from any background to read and understand more about the history of what we see as an exotic area.

The book is divided into a multitude of chapters which are needed to cover such an expansive topic. Each chapter is then broken down into smaller sections making it easier to read, absorb the information, and for research use.

This is an academic book. It is not written in a style to enjoy jut in one afternoon. You need to really want to learn this material to read it.

I did love the fact that the book contained visual images for the visual learner I am. There are pictures and maps to help understand the text better. The best part of the book, in my opinion is the glossary that is at the end of the text. Many of the names of people and places is hard to pronounce if one is not familiar withe the language much less understanding many of the words associated with the culture. This glossary is a great addition I used quite a bit. There is also a time line of events to help get your mind wrapped around the entire history. In addition there is an extensive bibliography for more research and notes that academically come one handy.

A good you need to have in your library if you are interested in Asian history.


Note: This book was part of a college course the author was in.
