India Booms: The Breathtaking Development And Influence Of Modern India
by Farndon, John
About This Book
Sixty years after achieving independence, India is a fully-fledged nuclear power, with massive economic growth and an increasingly nationalistic democracy, but is home to 40 percent of the world's malnourished children. The economy is booming despite an enduring anti-materialist philosophy. At the forefront of some of the world's most cutting-edge technology and research, India is also home to some of the most conservative and intolerant religious ideas in the world. But what do these contradictions and changes in India mean for us?
India Booms gives a fascinating insight into the country's politics, economy, social organisation, culture and relationships with other nations. Accessible to the layman, it is a companion volume to your travel guide.
