Description
With growing economic might, new political influence, and changing social dynamics, India is emerging as a major world power in the 21st century—a dynamic witnessed for almost half a century by South Asian history professor Dietmar Rothermund. Here he charts the key aspects of India's development since its independence in 1947, assessing the forces that have contributed to the nation's growth and those that have impeded it, including the export boom, the country's democratic system, nuclear decisions, and alliance with the United States against terrorist organizations. Rothermund also discusses the institution of caste, the rise of a new middle class, the persistence of poverty, Indian media and Bollywood, and the significance of the global diaspora of 20 million Indians.
