Globalisation, Governance Reforms and Development in India

First Edition

December 2007 | 564 pages | SAGE India
Globalization 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. Globalisation, Governance Reforms and Development in India is an attempt to fill in this gap. This volume brings together contributors from different disciplines and presents a contemporary analysis of globalization, governance reforms, and development in India. The book covers the theoretical and conceptual spectrum, state level reforms, and the social, cultural, and political dimensions of globalization and reforms in the country.

Key Features
  • Covers the multiple dimensions—social, cultural, and political—of the globalization process in India
  • Delineates the different theoretico-conceptual perspectives on globalization and applies them to analyze globalization and reforms in India
  • Demonstrates that the agenda of 'good governance' reforms represents a private sector-centered model of development
  • Affirms that 'competitive developmentalism' does not stand scrutiny in the case of state level reforms and development in India
  • Emphasizes the need for an alternative development model and policies to promote a democratic, egalitarian, and sustainable development in India rather than clutching to the 'dependent development' paradigm of globalization and reforms

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.
