From the Publisher"In a lucid, penetrating treatment of India's political economy since liberalisation, Atul Kohli disentangles one of the nation's most vexing paradoxes."
Contemporary South Asia
“Poverty Amid Plenty brings together Atul Kohli’s significant contribution to the political economy of India’s growth and redistribution within a single crisp volume. It will interest specialist and non-specialist readers alike, and sharpen debate on India’s economic reforms. It is the finest class-based argument on the politics of industrialization, growth and redistribution in India…Atul Kohli’s is a powerful scholarly voice that combines theoretical rigour with detailed empirical analysis. This book will reinvigorate the debate on India’s economic transition.”
Rahul Mukherji, Pacific Affairs
"As the title indicates this book by Atul Kohli sets out to explain both the remarkable economic growth in India during the last three decades and the disappointing lack of success in combating poverty … India’s political economy is notoriously difficult to summarise and predict but irrespective of this, Kohli’s book will be a standard reference work on India’s political economy at the beginning of the twenty-first century."
