UPDATED LIST as of 03/21/21 A positive development in the last 10 years is that history and current affairs books challenging the dominant non-Indic narratives on India (e.g. Marxist, Eurocentric, Islamist by the likes of Romila Thapar, Irfan Habib, Wendy Doniger, William Dalrymple) have really blossomed. The following books have really intrigued me, and I thought this is a good place to share them and get more recommendations.
If you have read these and like them, I suggest supporting the authors in a few ways: reviewing/rating them on Amazon and Goodreads, voting for their books on Goodreads lists, and sharing them with your friends/family. At the very least, this will serve as a list of authors to not ignore. Note that not all of these books deal with India specifically (e.g. The Case for Israel), but they present important viewpoints on issues important to Hindus/Indians.
