Editorial Reviews:

This widely-praised translation of Premchand's most celebrated novel is now in a second edition, with a new introduction by Vasudha Dalmia. It is a portrayal of social inequality that reflects the context in which it was written, during the rural upheavals of the 1920s and 1930s. An engaging introduction to north India before Independence, Godaan is at once village ethnography, moving human document, and insightful colonial history.

Summary: Read this book
Comment: I thought this was an excellent book that helped construct a frame for me to begin to understand India. After travelling in the country recently, my memories of the book helped me put into perspective what I saw about the Indians, and the times I saw them taking advantage of each other. More importantly, the book described the search for dignity that people of all countries must share. It is a very complex country and I was glad I read this.
