The Autobiography of an Unknown Indian
The Autobiography of an Unknown Indian
By Nirad C. Chaudhuri
Macmillan, 1951, 506 pp.

Taking his autobiography as a miniature of recent Indian history, the author has drawn a bitter picture of his country. The book is dedicated "to the memory of the British Empire in India" and denies the possibility of India's restoring herself through her own traditions or efforts.
