About The Book
In this timely study Binayak Ray challenges some of the more optimistic projections of India’s long term development. Among the prerequisites for sustainable development, he argues, are a stable government which is accountable for its policies and actions and capable of organising a clean administration supported by predictable economic and social policies, an independent judiciary, and commitment to be part of the international civil society. As areas of specific concern for India, Ray lists population growth, the quality and stock of human resources, access to energy resources, and agrarian reform. But beyond these more immediate concerns his study is concerned with fundamental questions of good governance in India.
