Praise for Capital Markets of India

"Alan Kanuk's compilation of the Capital Markets of India: An Investor's Guide provides a much-needed and timely resource that will facilitate greater investment flows to India: one of the twenty-first century's greatest investment opportunities."
—Ron Somers, President, United States-India Business Council

"Capital Markets of India is authoritative and readable and, most importantly, it is useful. I would encourage anyone, whether an individual or an institutional investor, who has existing securities investments in India or who is contemplating making such investments, to read Alan Kanuk's book."
—Anthony M. Miller, Executive Managing Director and Head of Asian Investments, Ramius Capital Group, LLC

"Currently one of the world's fastest growing economies and destined to become the most populous country in the world, India warrants investors' attention. Kanuk, drawing upon a rich and lengthy career, shows investors how to navigate the Indian markets. This book is essential reading for those who invest in India."
—Brian M. Beitner, CFA, Managing Director, Senior Equity Strategist, Trust Company of the West

"With the Indian economy continuing on its rapid growth path, the country's capital market is also going through a metamorphosis. The domestic market capitalization has recently overtaken the GDP in value. The time is ripe for India watchers to take a closer look at the Indian capital market. Alan Kanuk's book on the subject is timely and well worth reading."
—Ambassador Neelam Deo, Consul General of India in New York
