In the summer of 1956, Lloyd Rudolph and Susanne Rudolph traveled 5,000 miles from London to Jaipur in a Land Rover and recorded their impressions and experiences of people and places encountered on the way. Their passage to India marked the beginning of an academic career spanning over five decades spent researching, writing and teaching about the country. Destination India is an account of the Rudolph's journey 'East of Suez' - across Western Asia, Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan into the Indian subcontinent - and of all that they learned there.
