Comic Century: An Unreliable History of the 20th Century
Comic Century: An Unreliable History of the 20th Century
Description
From the Jacket:

In this slightly askew history of the twentieth century, Gautam Bhatia revisits the past to give us his own version of what really happened when the Wright brothers embarked on their first test run, Hitler won the Nuremberg rally, Gandhi gatecrashed the Round Table Conference and other such equally momentous events. With his characteristic panache and impudent wit, Bhatia sprays the whole cast and events its humour, denuding them of their halos. Complementing these comic retellings are Vishwajyoti Ghosh's brilliant illustrations which pull images and product out of known contexts to create a parallel story of irreverence and subversion. Shedding new light on the making of the automobile, the Indian independence movement, Marilyn Monroe and heart transplants, Comic Century is one history book that will not gather dust on the bookshelves.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
