Financial Times Best Book of the Year 

"This is an original and highly provocative book" 

– Martin Wolf, Financial Times

"A hugely thoughtful and innovative analysis of the phenomenon known as 'India Inc.'. Skillfully written – with a good measure of irony, humor, and bite – this book will set the standard for our understanding of this topic and period."

– Sumathi Ramaswamy, Duke University
