2.0 out of 5 stars Book is fine, shipping took 2 months Feb. 18 2011
Format:Paperback
I needed this book as it's an assigned reading for my India politics course, and it arrives after the midterm. Honestly, I think amazon should at LEAST pay for it since the course is $500 + my time invested in it.
