Pavan K. Varma

Le Défi indien: Pourquoi le XXIe siècle sera le siècle de l'Inde


De l'image que les Indiens projettent d'eux-mêmes à la démolition des stéréotypes entretenus au sujet du sous-continent, cet ouvrage propose une exploration des paradoxes qui marquent la plus grande démocratie du monde - une puissance économique et nucléaire avec laquelle il faut désormais compter. Très controversé en Inde pour son point de vue iconoclaste, Le Défi indien aborde des questions tant politiques et sociales que religieuses : posant sur ses compatriotes un regard averti et critique, Pavan K. Varma met l'accent sur les contradictions qui caractérisent leur rapport au pouvoir, à la richesse ou à la spiritualité.

Véritable machine à démolir les fantasmes, ce livre propose une vision inédite de l'Inde et des enjeux, essentiels, de son positionnement dans les décennies à venir.
