Product description


"Encompassing a vast canvas succinctly and incisively, the book is a worthy addition to the scholarship on the subject."
The Hindu

"If you want a smart, pithy and extremely well–informed take on the central issues facing India today, as well as a guide to all the main debates, then this is the book you need."
Steven Wilkinson, Yale University

"Scrupulous and wide ranging in its survey of the relevant literature, sober and balanced in its judgements on the economy, polity and society, this book will prove indispensable for understanding how and why India is what it is today, and where it may be heading."
Achin Vanaik, Former Professor of International Relations and Global Politics, Department of Political Science, University of Delhi

"A magisterial inter–disciplinary work that explains how pro–business reforms drove three decades of high growth in India and then explores in depth the many challenges that yet remain. India is at an exciting stage of its journey: this book captures its achievements and vulnerabilities."
Mushtaq H. Khan, SOAS, University of London

"This is an exceptional book that will provide a useful and up–to–date overview of contemporary India for both established scholars and those new to the field. It is also sufficiently comprehensive and clearly written to make a useful teaching resource for both graduate and advanced undergraduate courses."
Trent Brown, Australian Catholic University
