Caste and Color in Modern India

Harrison, Selig
November 1954
New Republic;11/1/54, Vol. 131 Issue 18, p15
The article discusses the book "An American in India," by Saunders Redding. The book has powerful timely interest. Redding's candid, sharp sketches of the Indian university intelligentsia present perhaps for the first time a close-up view of this strategic group. The book presents a story with dramatic reportorial effect, recounting ten give-and-take sessions with Indian audiences, another dozen personal encounters with individual Indians, and conversations with Americans he met along the, way. It can be said that Redding fails to dissect Hindu psychology
