The Argumentative Indian - Amartya Sen

Was finally finished this week, after plodding along for a while. its written in a rather academic style, and given to terms like post-modern ( which ,for the life of me, i don't understand ! ) That makes the reading some effort, often needing a rereading just to understand the point he's making. Then of course the subject matter is such that it needs some mulling over.

However, I enjoyed reading it nevertheless. It dealt with essays on wide ranging areas, from snippets of history, culture, religion, feminism with a open minded viewpoint, which I totally identified with.

However there's only so much of that academic style, that i can read, and now i need something free flowing, and needing no thinking!
