Book News Annotation:

Sumptuously illustrated, but containing an engaging and detailed text, this beautiful volume presents a thorough overview of the culture, history, people, and places of India. An initial section contains a series of breathtaking photos in 2-page plates surveying the country's landscape and sights. Subsequent sections contain the country's history and cultures described in a timeline chronology heavily illustrated by photos of artefacts, followed by a section profiling Indians from various castes and regions at work and home. Other sections, all equally rich in their images, describe religion, architecture, and travel. Oversized: 12x10.25". Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
