India Unbound: The Social and Economic Revolution from Independence to the Global Information Age Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

India today is a vibrant free-market democracy, a nation well on its way to overcoming decades of widespread poverty. The nations rise is one of the great international stories of the late twentieth century, and in India Unbound the acclaimed columnist Gurcharan Das offers a sweeping economic history of India from independence to the new millennium.

Das shows how Indias policies after 1947 condemned the nation to a hobbled economy until 1991, when the government instituted sweeping reforms that paved the way for extraordinary growth. Das traces these developments and tells the stories of the major players from Nehru through today. As the former CEO of Proctor & Gamble India, Das offers a unique insiders perspective and he deftly interweaves memoir with history, creating a book that is at once vigorously analytical and vividly written. Impassioned, erudite, and eminently readable, India Unbound is a must for anyone interested in the global economy and its future.

Synopsis:

The growth of India's economy is one of the great business stories of the past decade. Gurcharan Das, a prominent Indian columnist and former CEO of Procter & Gamble India, offers a fascinating history of India's economic past and a vision of its future.

Das shows how India's policies after independence in 1947 condemned the nation to a hobbled economy and widespread poverty. In 1991, however, the government instituted sweeping reforms that have made the nation one of the most vibrant markets in the world.

This book is a must for all concerned with the global economy.
