River of Life, River of Death: The Ganges and Modern India

Financial Times Asia news editor Victor Mallet’s newest book, River of Life, River of Death: The Ganges and Modern India, is a comprehensive introduction to Indian history, politics, religion and wildlife, told through the story of what may well be the world’s most important river. Drawing on four years of first-hand reporting and research on India and the subcontinent, Mallet takes the reader on a fascinating trip down the Ganges to investigate the future of this holy river, which is so closely tied to the future of India itself. Mallet is in conversation with Keith Richburg.
