A SURPRISING, GRIPPING NARRATIVE DEPICTING THE THINKERS WHOSE IDEAS FORMED CONTEMPORARY CHINA, INDIA, AND THE MUSLIM WORLD

A little more than a century earlier, independent thinkers throughout Asia looked for to frame a distinct intellectual practice that would influence the continent's surge to dominance. Yet this did not come to pass, as well as today those thinkers– Tagore, Gandhi, and also later on Nehru in India; Liang Qichao as well as Sun Yat-sen in China; Jamal al-Din al-Afghani as well as Abdurreshi al Ibrahim of the Ottoman Empire– are considereded as outsiders within the primary anticolonial practice. Yet as Pankaj Mishra demonstrates in this fascinating portrait of like minds, Asia's rebellion against the West is not the one led by faith-fired terrorists and prevented peasants; rather, it is rooted in the suggestions of these once renowned intellectuals. Now, when the ascendency of Asia seems possible as never previously, From the Damages of Realm is as needed as it is timely– a publication essential to our understanding of the world and also our location in it.
