India Booms by John Farndon
Book DescriptionIndia will soon rival China, and perhaps even the United States, on the world stage. We all need to know more about this fascinating country and "India Booms" is the perfect place to begin. This entertaining, up-to-date and informative guide provides all the information readers need on the India of today - and looks to the future to reveal what lies ahead for the India of tomorrow. India is a country with a rich history, but its present and its future are potentially even more dynamic and globally important than its past. The country is experiencing spectacular economic growth and its population is set to overtake that of China by 2032. Its role in the world will only get more important, and yet it is a country full of contradictions. Modern India is a nuclear power and a source of cutting edge technology and research, but it is also home to 40 per cent of the world's malnourished children. It is a liberal democracy, but its political processes are influenced by some of the most conservative religious ideas in the world. It has a booming economy, led by service and high tech industries, but has a lagging manufacturing sector and its economy seems at times both global and archaic. "India Booms" gets to the heart of these contradictions and looks beyond to give a fascinating insight into the country as it is now and as it will be in the future.
