The South Asia Summer Reading Group (SARG) is an informal organization of individuals with an interest in the Politics of South Asia. Over the 2018 summer, we will be reading eleven books on South Asian politics. Each week, one member of the group will review a book, with the review to be posted on the India Ink website.

We encourage you to read along with us, and to post your comments on the books on Twitter with #GUindiaink and #SARG18.

The following is the list of books, with the dates on which reviews will be posted. Clicking on the book name will direct you to Amazon where you can purchase the book
