About the Author

Shashi Tharoor served for twenty-nine years at the UN, culminating as Under-Secretary-General. He is a Congress MP in India, the author of fourteen previous books, and has won numerous literary awards, including a Commonwealth Writers' Prize. Tharoor has a PhD from the Fletcher School, and was named by the World Economic Forum in Davos in 1998 as a Global Leader of Tomorrow.


"Shashi Tharoor is the most charming and persuasive writer in India. His new book is a brave and characteristically articulate attempt to save a great and wonderfully elusive religion from the certainties of the fundamentalists and the politicization of the bigots."

--William Dalrymple

"[An] important book: it is about the dangers that lie in India's future as well as the woes and glories of the of India's most articulate liberals and a leading voice of those who reject the aggressively fundamentalist strains of Hindu nationalism."

--Financial Times

"The Hinduism Tharoor proudly asserts and defends is universalist, liberal, and syncretic...this deeply informative book is a must-read for Americans interested in Hinduism and the world's largest democracy." STARRED REVIEW


"Tharoor has undoubtedly done an important work that helps people understand key difference between Hinduism and Hindutva."

"A thoughtful celebration of Hinduism as a potentially unifying force."

--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Inglorious Empire

"Well-referenced and full of fascinating facts, quotes and anecdotes, Inglorious Empire is a scorching indictment of British rule in India, and of British imperialism more broadly."

--Green Left Weekly
