Book Description Viking / Penguin, New Delhi, 2007. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. ISBN: 978-0-67-008145-5, Bumping/ light chipping to the jacket top corners; little wear besides. Text is clean. 'For more than four decades after gaining independence, India, with its massive size and population, staggering poverty and slow rate of growth, was associated with the plodding, somnolent elephant, comfortably resting on its achievements of centuries gone by. Then in the early 1990s the elephant seemed to wake up from its slumber and slowly begin to change - until today, in the first decade of the twenty-first century, some have begun to see it morphing into a tiger. As India turns sixty, [the author] reminds us of the paradox that is India, the elephant that is becoming a tiger: with the highest number of billionaires in Asia, it still has the largest number of people living amid poverty and neglect, and more children who have not seen the inside of a schoolroom than any other country. So what does the twenty-first century hold for India?' 387 pages. Book. Bookseller Inventory # 040908

Book Description Penguin Viking,, New Delhi, India, 2007. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Hard cover with dust jacket. very good condition. 385 pages. Over the past 25 years, India has moved from a largely impoverished, underdeveloped country to an innovative, fast-changing society. This entertaining and informative book shows how and why.Interest in India has never been greater. Here Shashi Tharoor, one of the subcontinent's most respected writers and diplomats, offers precious insights into this complex, multifaceted land, which despite its dazzling diversity of languages, customs, and cultures remains-more than 60 years after its founding-the world's largest democracy. He describes the vast changes that have transformed this once sleeping giant into a world leader in science and technology, a nation once poverty-stricken that now boasts a middle class of over 300 million people-as large as the entire population of the United States! Artfully combining hard facts and statistics with opinion and observation, Tharoor discusses the strengths and weaknesses of his rapidly evolving homeland in five areas-politics, economics, culture, society, and sports-and takes a fresh look at the world's second most populous country. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall. Book. Bookseller Inventory # 110083
