INDIA A Wealth of DiversityProduct no.: HP040
India is as large as Europe, yet more diverse. It is home to nearly one billion people and more than 1,600 languages. It is also the world’s largest and most populous parliamentary democracy.
With its spectacular array of cultures - of nearly every creed and colour - India’s civilisation is more than five thousand years old. In the majority of its 500,000 villages, life has remained unchanged for hundreds of years. But it is also the place where 21st century technology and centuries-old traditions stand side-by-side.
India also experiences every type of climate and landscape; from snow-capped mountains to tropical beaches, lush rainforests to arid plains.
This lavishly illustrated book features everything from the caste system to cuisine; the sari to sport; music to marriage. All the states are featured in individual chapters along with chapters on the tribal peoples of India, Gandhi, the Nehrus and Independence.
Reproducing more than two hundred full colour photographs, India: A Wealth of Diversity is a spectacular book which celebrates the cultures, religions, customs and timeless heritage of one of the world’s most diverse nations.
