The author considers the social, economic and political forces that helped the rise of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and the risks of constitutional liberalism yielding space to an illiberal democracy. He views the role of Indian business conglomerates as double-edged, and reviews India's stance and role in global trade and climate change negotiations.
This work uses data extensively to support analysis, even as it tells stories of hope and frustration within a framework of qualified optimism. The brisk and engaging style of an expert wordsmith will appeal to anyone interested in the new "Asian Drama": the tension with China, the "arc of friendship" that brings closer the region's largest democracies (Japan, Australia and India), and the many facets of the new energy in Indo-US relations. If you want to make sense of a complex country that encompasses "a universe of realities," this is the book you've been waiting for.
