Globalisation, Governance Reforms and Development in India

First Edition
Edited by:


February 2009 | 564 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
Globalisation has brought forth significant changes in India and has generated intense discussion about the national level economic reforms that it has brought in. In the process, the state level reforms have not received much attention. This book is an attempt to fill in this gap. It brings together contributors from different disciplines and presents a contemporary analysis of globalisation, governance reforms and development in India and covers the theoretical and conceptual spectrum, state level reforms, and the social, cultural and political dimensions of globalisation and reforms in the country.

To understand the dynamics of the transition of globalisation from a ‘global village’ to ‘global pillage’…this book is a must. Most importantly, unlike many others in the edited genre of publications these days, it is engaging, focused and highly researched.
