Reviews - What do customers think about Kautilya Today: Jairam Ramesh on a Globalizing India?

A Pleasant surprise of a book, coming from a politician!  Apr 28, 2003
I bought this book from the Strand Book Stall in Bangalore after reading a few good reviews of the book on the net. The book is some 490 pages long, and has almost a 100 chapters/essays the author wrote under the name 'Kautilya' for India Today over a four year period from 1998 - 2002. The articles in the book are all dated, but instead of in chronological order they are arranged thematically.

The surprising thing I realized on reading the book (I have read through half the book) is that it is surprisingly well informed, well-researched, and offers a wealth of information to someone wanting to understand the Indian economy beyond the sound bites that the commercial rags (most Indian newspapers) carry. You get to read about such varied topics as Bose-Einstein condensates, John Nash, and more mundane topics as disinvestment, rupee fluctuations, etc... Mr Ramesh is relatively unbiased and appreciates Yashwant Sinha's efforts to open up the Indian economy.

Even while I do not agree with at least a few opinions that Mr Ramesh has, on the Gujarat riots for example, his anti-Hindutva rhetoric, his reluctance to be truthful about the consequences of Nehru's socialist legacy and Indira Gandhi's corruption institutionalizing rule, his articles still make for interesting reading.

One complaint I have is with the spelling erros in the book. Evidently some over eager, under qualified opy editor took it upon himself to over-hyphenate words in the book. Read the book to understand what I am talking about.
