"If there is a reason why a nation which launches satellites has reduced its promising indigenous computer manufacturing industry to ′vegetable′ retailing, one can search for it in this 200-page book.... Brunner′s rigorous statistical study uses figures for the 10 crucial years between 1976 and 1986 to discover the directions which the industry had taken, and is taking. The book lists exhaustive data drawing from the numerous interviews with the department of electronics and other agencies." --The Economic Times Closing the Technology Gap provides crucial information on newly industrialized countries, detailing the necessary steps for achievement of technological parity with more advanced countries. Focusing on the fascinating history of India′s technological growth, the author provides a basis for his study. This book makes a bold contribution in the field of technological analysis as well as giving economically developing countries intelligent guidelines to follow. Areas of interest include: Economics, Industrial Development, Industrial Policy, Computer Technology, Policy Studies, and Business.

Review:

`I found the book itself well researched, interesting in the material covered and detailed in its presentation of facts.... I would strongly recommend its reading to students of Indian industry and particularly students interested in industrial development. For those working on the computer industry... it is an informative case study, highlighting the problems faced by late-comer firms in trying to catch up with the remarkable rate of technical change in one industry, and the role of policy in hastening this process of catch up' - Journal of Evolutionary Economics
