Overview


South Asia is among the fastest growing regions in the world, but it is also home to the largest concentration of people living in conditions of debilitating poverty, human misery, gender disparities, and conflict. This volume focuses on the impact of demographics, globalization, human mobility, and the rise of the middle class in accelerating growth in South Asia, in the context of transformational challenges-modernization, inclusiveness and vulnerability. Taking cognizance of the diversity within and across countries, it emphasizes pluralism in development.

Bringing together essays by distinguished academics on South Asia, the volume examines critical issues and offers incisive analysis to bring out the diversity of perspectives and arguments for a nuanced picture of economic transition in South Asia. Offering rigorous empirical evidence, it highlights the role of governance and the need for sound policies to manage transformation as well as harness growth drivers within the region.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Very valuable suggestions on the way forward in shaping our destiny."--M. S. Swaminathan

"This is a fine collection of essays on one of the important policy issues today. Experts on South Asia in particular will profit greatly from reading it."--Jagdish Bhagwati, Columbia University

"These essays are alive to the prospect of heartening change, but, to my relief, also dont pull any punches when it comes to the pitfalls. All in all, a balanced look at South Asias future."--Tarun Khanna, Harvard University

"This book will generate much debate on the future of South Asia... Its a must read for South Asian policymakers whose decisions will affect 2 billion people."--Ajay Chhibber, UNDP

"This is an impressive collection of essays on various aspects of South Asian development...[They] cover both the opportunities and the challenges that face South Asia in achieving rapid and equitable growth. The book is analytically of high quality and also very readable."--Vijay Joshi, St. Johns College, Oxford University

"This book is an extraordinarily useful look into India's possible futures. Unlike other exercises in this genre, the essays in this book are grounded in a solid empirical engagement with emerging trends, and rigorous reasoning about where these trends are likely to take us. This is a wide ranging starting point for a study of India's future."--Pratap Bhanu Mehta, Centre for Policy Research
