Book Reviews

Book and article reviews are part and parcel of academic life. During my masters in Jawaharlal Nehru University, I started reviewing books as part of my coursework. I am sharing these book reviews here. Some of my friends have also contributed their reviews. These review articles will be of great help to many students and that’s also the purpose of sharing these reviews. Most of these reviews are related to political science and other interdisciplinary subjects.

The reviews of biographies, novels and personal development books are my current endeavour. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!
