Riassunto: A magnificent all colour photographic record of Asia's, and possibly the world's most romantic highway, including a brief and scholarly text by one of the world's great authorities on life in India.
Review: The Grand Trunk Road: A Passage Through India is a photographic journey in vivid color through the lifeline of India's past and present. The Grand Trunk Road is the axis of the Indian subcontinent's heavily populated and politically dominant North. Raghubir Singh's vibrant color photographs evoke the energies and contrasts of a modern journey along the road Singh terms "a living panorama of North India's people". No other road carries such a baggage of history; from the Taj Mahal and the Golden Temple to the ancient battle sites of the Mahabharata; from the Buddhists' sacred Bodh Gaya to the magnificent cities of Mogul and British India. In his frank and documentary style, Singh gives an unsentimental and rigorous picture of the subcontinent, a testimonial and a diary-in-progress for all Indian classes, religions, times, ages, and cultures. -- Midwest Book Review
