'This book provides a clinical and analytical portrait of the dynamics of innovation in the two most populous countries of the world. It goes beyond the usual media hype on the rise of China and India in the ranking of growing economies of the world, and traces the interlinkages between government economic and R&D policies, policy stance towards multi-national enterprises and FDI, the research activities of universities, and the strategies of private business both domestic and transnational. I believe that the volume will be highly useful to all students of China, India and the potentials for, and constraints on welfare-enhancing innovation in developing countries in general'. Dr Amiya Kumar Bagchi, Director and Professor of Economics, Institute of Development Studies Kolkata, Culcutta University

'Parayil and D'Costa's edited book on science, technology and innovation in India and China is to be warmly welcomed. The topic is of great importance for academics, business people and policy makers. The line-up of authors assembled for this edited volume is most impressive.' Peter Nolan, Sinyi Professor of Chinese Management, Chair of the University of Cambridge's Development Studies Committee
