about

A comprehensive and revealing account of the ongoing struggles and instability of India’s political and economic institutions

India’s ascent as a formidable power on the world stage and its geopolitical ramifications have received much attention in recent years. This comprehensive study by Sumit Ganguly and William Thompson, two highly distinguished scholars of political science and international relations, delves into the intricate inner workings of this great Asian nation to reveal an Indian state struggling to maintain national security, domestic order, and steady fiscal growth despite weaknesses in its economic and political institutions. The authors’ sobering account questions India’s perceived strengths and domestic and foreign policy initiatives, while focusing on the South Asian giant’s infrastructural and economic growth problems, opposition to reform, and other important hurdles the nation has faced and will continue to face over the coming decade and beyond.

Editorial Reviews

“Ganguly and Thompson accomplish what is truly rare:  they integrate insights from history, national comparisons, and nuanced theory in a way that sheds fresh light on the prospects of one of the world’s great civilizations. This is a book not only for those who seek to understand India, but for anyone who seeks to understand the world’s path to modernity.”--Jack Snyder, Robert and Renée Belfer Professor of International Relations, Columbia University
