India on the Move

A review by Teresita C. Schaffer of Strategic Consequences of India’s Economic Performance, by Sanjaya Baru.

His basic argument is that economic strength is a critical element of national power and strategy, one that has made possible India’s emergence to its present position, and one that India must continue to mobilise if it is to emerge as a serious global player. Although the book is a collection of reprinted columns, a format not normally attractive, this one deserves a large readership for the importance of its guiding theme and the argument he presents.
