History Study Group
The book we are tackling this time is From the Ruins of Empire: The Revolt against the West and the Remaking of Asia (2012) by Indian author Pankaj Mishra. A new paperback version of the book lists for $20, but can be found for less. An ebook is $13. This meeting will cover the first three chapters.
This is a book about some of the seminal thinkers who helped shape today's Asian world. It was named a book of the year or an editor's choice by the New York Times, The Economist, and the Financial Times. And if they had known about us, we would have been named the best History Study Group in Minnesota.
