Bourke-White was a photographer working for "Life" magazine at the time she took these photographs "I arrived in India in the early spring of 1946. The groundwork for independence was being laid, and I stayed for most of that year, traveling about the country . Then I came home, started this book, found I wanted to learn more about India, and returned to spend part of '47 and '48 there. I found startling parallels to Western life and problems; many times I was reminded of the struggles of the infant American republic. India and Pakistan are far from realizing complete 'freedom'; new constitutions do not automatically dissolve old inequities as some events in this book will demonstrate. But to an American, the whole charter of liberty for the Indian people is illuminated by its first five words. 'We the People of India. , " Margaret Bourke-White (June 14, 1904 – August 27, 1971) was an American photographer and documentary photographer. She is best known as the first foreign photographer permitted to take pictures of Soviet five-year plan, the firsthand American female war photojournalist, and to have her photograph on the cover of the first issue of Life magazine. She died of Parkinson's disease about eighteen years after she developed her first symptoms. EB; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 245 pages; Signed by Author .
