Bookshop Barnie - Jonathan Glancey on Nagaland: A Journey to India's Forgotten Frontier

Tuesday 28th June 2011 6:30pm - 8:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

Glancey is the architecture critic for The Guardian, but this book explores the Naga hills of India. Part travelogue, part personal testimony, part political exploration, it takes us through Adolf Hitler and Hirohito; to 'well-meaning colonialists'; and to one of the most important, devastating battles of the Second World War.

Come and debate whether the incursion of modernity is a good thing or a bad thing for tribal regions.

Venue: The Gallery at Foyles, 113 - 119 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0EB
Time: 6:30 for drinks and a 6:45 pm start
Tickets: FREE Email futurecitiesproject@gmail.com to reserve
