Index

[The book] is well crafted in terms of the flow of concepts….there are lots of interesting substantiated insights on the topics underlined and this is a genuine read for any scholar or practitioner, and particularly for policymakers who appreciate stronger innova­tion system as the pillar for the sustained growth of a developing economy.

The areas that the book covers could not have been more refined or subtle. This is precisely the core strength and the main attraction of the book…the book, nevertheless, has a strong quantitative focus spanning data, empirics and cases…this should not only guide future researchers in their choice of hypothesis, param­eters and variables but would also offer serious insights and interpretations…the analysis and evidence presented in this volume would be important and informative to the development and public policy community in this regard.
