“India: A Portrait,” Patrick French, 2011

This is an ambitious attempt to make sense of a land with one-sixth of the world's population, in the midst of the fastest change in its 4,000-year history.

“Pakistan: A Hard Country,” Anatol Lieven, 2011

It’s an insightful take on contemporary Pakistan, well worth reading despite its slant toward the military.

“India Unbound: The Social and Economic Revolution from Independence to the Global Information Age,” Gurcharan Das, 2001

More than a decade after its publication, this compelling memoir remains the best account of India’s misguided embrace of socialism.
