The Press in India has always been at the forefront of national life. This book shows that the tradition of independent journalism is alive and well in India in the sixth decade after independence and indeed much of what has appeared in Indian newspapers has shaped and affected the course of Indian democracy. This anthology looks at some of the themes that defined national discourse from around the time of Independence to the present day as expressed through journalism in the English press. Major newspapers like The Hindu, The Indian Express, The Hindustan Times and The Times of India have thus been inextricably bound with the destiny of this nation, offering incisive analyses and clarity on issues that critically impacted on the lives of its people. The richness of insight and depth of perception offered in this collection makes this anthology invaluable not only to students of journalism but to anyone who seeks to understand India.
