“The Revolt Against the West and the Remaking of Asia.” A provocative account of how China, India and the Muslim world are remaking the world in their own image. The Victorian period, viewed in the West as a time of self-confident progress, was experienced by Asians as a catastrophe. Mishra allows the reader to see the events of the two centuries anew, through the eyes of the journalists, poets, radicals and charismatics.
