Description

India today is a vibrant free-market democracy and has begun to flex its muscles in the global information economy and on the world stage. In this acclaimed book, Gurcharan Das tells the stories of the major players in a period of rapid and profound change, and makes comprehensible and compelling the economic and political developments responsible for these changes. Das argues that the changes of the past 50 years have, at last, amounted to a revolution in India. By weaving his personal story into the larger context of contemporary history, Das provides a book that is at once vigorously analytical and vividly written.show more
