From 2001 to 2006, Edward Luce served as South Asia bureau chief for the Financial Times; he currently serves as that paper's Washington bureau chief. In addition, he is married to an Indian woman. Given this background, it comes as no surprise that Luce has chosen to write a book about India. His aim, he states in the introduction to In Spite of the Gods: The Strange Rise of Modern India, "is to provide an unsentimental evaluation of contemporary India against the backdrop of its widely expected ascent to great power status in the twenty-first century."
