Sen's deeply informed and humane writing connects history, culture, literature, economics, and politics. Several of the essays are concerned particularly with India--its historical traditions and the issues it faces today; many--such as his address to the General Assembly of the United Nations in 2004--engage with global concerns. All are written with a passion and conviction, a gently persuasive style, and a characteristically undogmatic engagement with differing points of view.
Most of these essays were first published in the Indian literary publication The Little Magazine. Others are published here for the first time. The book is introduced by Gopalkrishna Gandhi, former Indian diplomat and governor of West Bengal, who is also the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi.
