2 Analysing Social Opposition to Reforms: The Electricity Sector in India

V. Santhakumar

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2008, 8178298589 / 9788178298580, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
This book examines how market contexts shape the opposition of people to public sector reforms, with evidence from the Indian electricity sector. Based on a survey of 7,000 households in 14 Indian states and following a rational choice framework, it analyses the response of households to the prospect of privatization of electricity utilities. Analysing Social Opposition to Reforms: The Electricity Sector in India discusses the possibility of compensating losers and sequencing reform strategies. It uses empirical evidence from the Indian electricity sector to suggest that much of the opposition can be explained in terms of the (short term) losses due to reforms. The book uses insights gained from Indian data to discuss the likelihood of opposition to reforms in other public services and also to examine the performance of electricity reforms in other Asian countries. It is one of the few empirical studies on how gains and losses affect opposition/support to economic/institutional reforms globally and as such is a valuable contribution to development studies, political economy and governance. The book will be of great interest to development professionals, policy makers and researchers. Printed Pages: 248. 028565

Bazaar India: Markets, Society, and the Colonial State in Gangetic Bihar, Anand A. Yang
4 Bazaar India: Markets, Society, and the Colonial State in Gangetic Bihar

Anand A. Yang

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2000, 81-215-0926-2 / 9788121509268, First Indian Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
The present edition of the writings of the late Indrani Ray has been planned around certain identifiable factors that determined India's changing tryst with the Indian Ocean in the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. While the protagonist in these writings is the Indian merchant, the biographer is the French East India Company's Official. Using a wide array of French sources, the author reconstructed the changing world of the Indian merchant as he rubbed shoulders with the European trading companies in the palmy decades of the seventeenth century and retreated into his shell in the turbulent decades of the eighteenth. Taken together, these essays underscore both the prosperity and vitality of Indian trade in the seventeenth century as well as its inherent fragility in the face of political uncertainty and unrestrained competition in the succeeding years. The conclusions arrived at, tend to reinforce some of the better known propositions about the nature and orientation of pre-modern Indian trade and the making of its material context. Individually, the essays constitute important interventions in ongoing debates about the extent and logic of Mughal decline, the benevolence of the Mughal state towards matters maritime and about the relative importance of European trade vis-?vis Asian trade in the economy of eighteenth century Bengal. The Introduction attempts to identify these interventions and knit the essays around the current debates on the eighteenth century crisis in Indian history. The introduction, will help to situate the relevance of the French connection in the complex trading grid of the Indian Ocean. The fact that the French were the most serious rivals of the English for empire and very nearly succeeded in the imperial game is often obscured in the flush of English victories. In terms of the historiography on maritime India, this has meant a subtle neglect of French language sources in the reconstruction of the trading world of the Indian merchant and seafarer. That this omission is entirely unwarranted is amply borne out by Indrani Ray's analysis of French archival sources and documents like the Roques' manuscript, which in terms of both range and detail is of enduring value.

6 Brands Under Fire

Ivan Arthur and Kurien Mathews

Penguin Portfolio, New Delhi, India, 2008, 0670082260 / 9780670082261, First Edition, Paperback, New, 14 x 22 Cm 
Big brands, big companies, big budgets—and yet, things can still go wrong. In fact, four of the country’s most powerful brands were involved in major brand disasters: Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Chocolates, Coca-Cola and Pepsi, and UTI’s Unit-64 were hit by major problems—worms in chocolates, pesticides in colas and a catastrophe in the country’s favorite mutual fund. In Brands under Fire, brand experts Ivan Arthur and Kurien Mathews use these case studies to cut through the common thinking on brand behaviour to submit fresh insights into the brands of the 21st century. In this book, the two authors, together with India’s most respected personalities from the fields of marketing, communication, academics and social science, explore the whole meaning of a brand, not just in the reality of today’s marketplace but also in the new global environment. Are we witnessing the fading out of the traditional concepts of the brand as a deliverer of consumer expectations and the arrival of alternative models? What impact does the reach of new media, aggressive social activism, changing global sensitivities, agricultural, industrial and economic practice, the unpredictability and uncertainty of an increasingly complex environment, and, above all, a fully participating consumer who influences the product and brand dynamics, have on brand behaviour and a brand’s dialogue with the consumer? Brands under Fire questions whether there is a need to re-evaluate our relationship with brands and redesign it to make it more meaningful—to go beyond the traditional concept of the brand as merely a transaction between seller and buyer to new definitions of what today’s brands can be. Brands under Fire will earn a place on the bookshelves of frontline managers, strategists and practitioners alike. Printed Pages: 232. 026722

8 Business and the Buddha: Doing Well By Doing Good

Lloyd Field, PH.D.

Wisdom Publications, Boston, USA, 2007, 0861715446 / 9780861715442, First Edition, Paperback, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
All businesses want to do well, but can they also do good? Lloyd Field says yes, and moreover, no business can afford to focus simply on ?doing well.” Increasingly, public assessment of a business’s worth must take into account its consideration of shared human values. That doesn’t mean a business can’t or should not compete; it means that investing in efforts to build a better society can, on many levels, be an asset. In this book, Field lays out the guidelines for putting social responsibility, both corporate and individual, into practice without sacrificing profits. Drawing from traditional Buddhist teachings, Field shows how, with attention to ethics, skillful means, and corporate responsibility, entrepreneurs and decision-makers can achieve new levels of happiness and security both inside the company and out, while acting as a powerful force for positive global change.

9 Business Sutra: A Very Indian Approach to Management

Devdutt Pattanaik

Aleph Book Company, 2013, 8192328074 / 9788192328072, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 16 x 23.5 Cm 
In this landmark book, best-selling author, leadership coach and mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik shows how, despite its veneer of objectivity, modern management is rooted in Western beliefs and obsessed with accomplishing rigid objectives and increasing shareholder value. By contrast, the Indian way of doing businessas apparent in Indian mythology, but no longer seen in practice accommodates subjectivity and diversity, and offers an inclusive, more empathetic way of achieving success. Great value is placed on darshan, that is, on how we see the world and our relationship with Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth. Business Sutra uses stories, symbols and rituals drawn from Hindu, Jain and Buddhist mythology to understand a wide variety of business situations that range from running a successful tea stall to nurturing talent in a large multinational corporation. At the heart of the book is a compelling premise: if we believe that wealth needs to be chased, the workplace becomes a rana-bhoomia battleground of investors, regulators, employers, employees, vendors, competitors and customers; if we believe that wealth needs to be attracted, the workplace becomes a ranga-bhoomia playground where everyone is happy. Brilliantly argued, original and thoroughly accessible, Business Sutra presents a radical and nuanced approach to management, business and leadership in a diverse, fast-changing, and increasingly polarized world.

The relative insulation and rapid recovery of emerging Asia from the global financial crisis has evoked considerable interest in the growth experience of the Asian region. This book offers a unique view of this phenomenon through a critical and in-depth analysis of international capital flows, FDI, and exchange rate regimes and choices. Using a combination of quantitative data and analytical rigour, the essays provide answers to a wide array of questions of contemporary relevance such as: ?How has emerging Asia handled booms and busts in capital flows? ?How important are worker remittances as a source of external financing? ?How are FDI flows to emerging Asia from within Asia different as compared to those from OECD economies? ?What are the de jure and de facto policies of foreign bank entry into emerging Asian economies? ?What has been the role of bank lending in India’s robust growth? ?How are emerging Asian currencies managed in the context of global imbalances? While the book covers India, China, and other sub-regions of East and South Asia, it also has valuable policy pointers for other emerging markets.

23 Gender Stereotypes in Corporate India: A Glimpse

Sujoya Basu

Response Books, New Delhi, India, 2008, 8178298511 / 9788178298511, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
A stereotype is a conceptual image that may lead to a simplified view of a person or a thing. Inaccurate stereotypes serve to constrict and limit vision and perception. Gender Stereotypes in Corporate India: A Glimpse explores the theme of `understated` gender stereotypes in the corporate domain in India, while delving into the antecedents and outcomes. Studies suggest that only an insignificant percentage of women managers ever reach the higher echelons of management in most organizations—a phenomenon which can be attributed to the glass ceiling, and the differential treatment meted out to women managers in terms of career mobility, recruitment, evaluation, compensation and other factors. Studies also suggest that gender stereotypes contribute largely to such phenomena. Through three broad studies, the book, a first of its kind, explores existing managerial gender stereotypes in Indian corporates, the antecedents of such stereotypes and the possibility of reducing such stereotypical inaccuracies. The book argues that a basic transformation at the level of policy making, along with a collective will for changing the mindset of the people, is needed to overcome gender differences in organizations as well as educational institutions. This book will interest a wide readership including women professionals, students and trainers in corporate training schools and business schools, sociologists, and organizational psychologists.

26 Gods of Management: The Changing World of Organisations

Charles Handy

Penguin Portfolio, New Delhi, India, 2008, 0143102850 / 9780143102854, First Edition, Paperback, New, 14 x 22 Cm 
‘It was always a myth that there is one best way to manage, but it has been a pervasive myth and a damaging one, to both individuals and organizations. The Greeks at least recognized a variety of gods, even if each had his or her favourite. We need a law of requisite variety in management as well as a theory of cultural propriety.? The four gods of the title symbolize the very different styles of management and culture to be found in today’s organizations. Zeus is the dynamic entrepreneur who rules over companies of the club cluture, characterized by speed of decision and rapid, intuitive communication. Apollo, god of order and bureaucracy, is the patron of the role culture, based not on personalities but on definition of the jobs to be done. Athena, goddess of craftsmen, recognized only expertise as the basis of power and influence: hers is the task culture. Dionysus is the god preferred by artists and professionals within the existential culture, people who owe little or no allegiance to a boss. Under this witty and sparkling allegory, Charles Handy, Britain’s foremost business guru, makes a serious analysis of the changing patterns of work and business. Gods of Management is a world bestseller which is required reading for managers, business students and everyone who wants to be a survivor on a world of constantly changing organizational culture.

29 How Asia Works: Success and Failure in the World's Most Dynamic Region

Joe Studwell

Hachette India, Gurgaon, India, 2013, 1846682428 / 9781846682421, First Edition, Paperback, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
A provocative look at what has worked and what hasn't in East Asian economics. Until the catastrophic economic crisis of the late 1990s, East Asia was perceived as a monolithic success story. But heady economic growth rates masked the most divided continent in the world one half the most extraordinary developmental success story ever seen, the other half a paper tiger. Joe Studwell explores how policies ridiculed by economists created titans in Japan, Korea and Taiwan, and are now behind the rise of China, while the best advice the West could offer sold its allies in south-east Asia down the economic river. The first book to offer an Asia-wide deconstruction of success and failure in economic development, Studwell's latest work is provocative and iconoclastic and sobering reading for most of the world's developing countries. How Asia Works is a must-read book that packs powerful insights about the world's most misunderstood continent. Printed Pages: 322. 037899

30 How China and India are Reshaping Their Future and Yours

For the first time since the rise of Western capitalism, entrepreneurs in China and India can ignore New York and London—and still build companies worth billions. Thanks to social and economic revolutions, Asia has captured the best minds and money from all around the world. In Billions of Entrepreneurs, Tarun Khanna uses on-the-ground stories and thorough research to show how China and India are embracing the world on their own distinct terms. Entrepreneurs are powering change through new business models and bringing hope to countless people. Through intriguing, often provocative comparisons of triumphs and travails in both countries, the author illuminates such critical areas as: * The challenges of governing 2.4 billion people with entrepreneurial tendencies * The need for information accessibility, transparency, and reliability * The balance between private property rights and public interests * The need to encourage and fund indigenous enterprise * The role of overseas Chinese and Indians in development back home * The rise of medical tourism and the inequality of health care This book reveals how such differences will influence China’s and India’s future development as well as what the two countries can—and must—learn from each other today. A compelling account, Billions of Entrepreneurs paints a vivid picture of how China and India are reshaping business, politics, and society around the world. Printed Pages: 368. 021391

31 How India Earns, Spends and Saves: Unmasking the Real India

Rajesh Shukla

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2010, 8132104765 / 9788132104766, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
This book maps the earning, spending and saving profiles of Indians in the post-liberalisation era. It studies how socio-economic, religious and individual characteristics lead to inequality in the incomes of households. Among other aspects of the problematique, it reveals that while a household’s income is primarily dependent on socio-economic factors (occupation, education and age of its chief earner), its economic prosperity is impacted by factors like its spending and saving levels, sectors of employment of members, state of residence, and so on. The book is based on the results of the National Survey of Household Income and Expenditure (NSHIE) 2004?5, conducted under the aegis of the National Council for Applied Economics Research (NCAER). It not only offers valuable insights for economic analysts, policy makers, development professionals and academics, but the primary data of the survey also offers opportunities for further research.

The final three papers share a common focus on India’s external financial relations. The third paper analyzes the process of capital account liberalization and the integration of India’s financial institutions into the global financial system. The fourth paper measures the evolution of prices in the nontradable and tradable sectors of the Indian economy and seeks explanations for the rise in the relative price of nontradables. The last paper addresses the issue of the adequacy of India’s current foreign exchange reserves.

37 India's Liberalisation Experience: Hostage to the WTO?

Suparna Karmakar, Rajiv Kumar, and Bibek Debroy (eds)

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2008, 0761936572 / 9780761936572, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
This book reviews India`s liberalisation measures in the last decade, in cognisance of the impact of the country`s World Trade Oraganisation (WTO) membership on the same. The collection of articles by subject experts recognises that the changes mandated by WTO membership are but one of the three-pronged liberlisation measures that the country has been subjected to—in the external, domestic (industrial policies) and financial sectors. The lucid analyses bear out that rather than being WTO-induced, external liberalisation of most sectors has been part of India`s general economic reform programme, having been shaped by domestic compulsions. India`s Liberalisation Experience: Hostage to the WTO? also analyses how the country has coped with and benefited from its obligations and rights as a WTO member. It attempts to evaluate the impact of the domestic reforms on the country`s economy and the implications thereof on its performance as a WTO negotiator. It tries to dispel the myths regarding the impact of international trade negotiations on India`s ongoing reform processes and its developmental and poverty/livelihood concerns. Thus, it will appeal not only to WTO experts, but also to trade policy analysts, academicians, research students, policy-makers, scholars and economists. Printed Pages: 416. 028564

India's Overland Trade with Central Asia and Persia during the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Centuries, Joginder K. Chawla
38 India's Overland Trade with Central Asia and Persia during the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Centuries

Joginder K. Chawla

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2006, 81-215-1160-7 / 9788121511605, Reprint, Hard Cover, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The thirteenth century opened new vistas in the world history, particularly Asia. It witnessed the rise and fall of different dynasties and ultimately allowed the Mongols to survive as the mightiest power in China, Russia (Kipchak), Central Asia, and Persia for more than a century. They brought under their sway the Islamic lands of the Orient except India where the Turks had already established themselves as a powerful state during this period. The present study is the first of its kind dealing with India's overland trade with Central Asia and Persia during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The book seeks to interpret the working of the political forces in India and her neighbouring countries which shaped the commercial network of the medieval period. Despite the Mongol devastatations, the yasa of Chingiz Khan and the zeal displayed by the Turks created an aura of mercantile activities. Printed Pages: 196 with 2 folding maps. 030623

42 International Competitiveness, Investment and Finance: A Case Study of India

A. Ganesh-Kumar, Kunal Sen and Rajendra R. Vaidya

Routledge, New Delhi, India, 0415312329 / 9780415312325, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Studies on international competitiveness have tended to focus primarily on factors such as productivity, costs and technological capabilities, largely ignoring the role of financial factors. In this book the authors offer a fuller account of the determinants of international competitiveness. Using India as a case study, this well-written, concise book covers everything one needs to know to understand how a country becomes internationally competitive, Showing that reforms that pertain to the real sector alone, such as industrial deregulation and trade reforms, are not enough to enhance a country`s competitiveness, the text makes a compelling case for complementary financial sector reforms. Of interest to academics studying international trade, industrial economics and development economics, this book is also guaranteed to be extremely useful for professional economists and those involved with policy making in developed and developing countries. Contents List of figures List of tables Preface 1. Competitiveness, investment and finance: analytical links 2. The policy environment in India 3. The balance of payments and national competitiveness 4. The determinants of sectoral competitiveness 5. Outward orientation: a firm-level analysis 6.

43 Knowledge to Policy: Making the Most of Development Research

Fred Carden

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2009, 8178299305 / 9788178299303, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
Does research influence public policy and decision-making and, if so, how? This book is the most recent to address this question, investigating the effects of research in the field of international development. It starts from a sophisticated understanding about how research influences public policy and decision-making. It shows how research can contribute to better governance in at least three ways: by encouraging open inquiry and debate, by empowering people with the knowledge to hold governments accountable, and by enlarging the array of policy options and solutions available to the policy process. Knowledge to Policy: Making the Most of Development Research examines the consequences of 23 research projects funded by Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC). Key findings and case studies from Asia, Africa, and Latin America are presented in a reader-friendly, journalistic style, giving the reader a deeper grasp and understanding of approaches, contexts, relationships and events. The book will be useful to academics, researchers and students of political science, public administration, development studies, and international affairs; professionals in donor and development organizations worldwide; policy- and decision-makers in government (local and national levels) and international arenas (particularly trade and finance); and development agencies and civil society (non-governmental) organizations concerned with integrating the voice of citizens into policy- and decision-making processes.

44 Land, Politics and Trade in South Asia

Sanjay Subrahmanyam (ed.)

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2004, 0-19-566707-7 / 9780195667073, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Originally planned as a festschrift for Dharma Kumar, this collection of outstanding essays has recently appeared as a special issue of IESHR. The essays represent a diversity of views and methods, all of which are brought to bear on issues concerning various aspects of the economy, society and culture of colonial India. Particular topics focused on include the agrarian history of South India, common lands in western India, the nexus between trade and production, the textile trade in twentieth-century South India, the nature of collaboration and conflict between the Dutch East India Company and private Portuguese traders in the Indian Ocean, adventurers who accompanied and participated in the colonial transition in South India and the rise of the coffee house in colonial Tamil Nadu. In the Introduction Sanjay Subrahmanyam attempts to carry out the difficult exercise of making sense of Indian historiography . For the book version, the editor has expanded on this Introduction, an d he has also added two more essays: Ravi Ahuja s State Formation and Famine Policy in Early Colonial India', and Thomas Trautmann's 'Dr Johnson and the Pandits: Imaging the Perfect Dictionary in Colonial Madras'.Eminent historians have contributed to this volume in memory of Dharma Kumar, whose intellectual contribution as an economic historian and editor is undisputed. This collection of outstanding essays represents the dynamic aspect of the history writing about the colonial period, with one eye always trained on its effects on understanding contemporary India. Sanjay Subrahmanyam s lucid introduction fulfils the task of making sense of Indian historiography and its evolving profile. Among the range of areas addressed by these essays, issues relating to south Indian agrarian history are covered by David Ludden and Tsukasa Mizushima, and the regional-language documentation regarding common lands in western India by Sumit Guha. Ravi Ahuja analyses the famine policy of the ea rly East India Company, and John Richards, Tirthankar Roy and Om Prakash address different aspects of the issue of trade in colonial India. Subrahmanyam uses a set of biographical instances to map colonial transitions in South India. Thomas Trautmann s essay looks at early colonial dictionaries in Madras to better understand the nature of early colonial cultural policy. A. R. Venkatachalapathy describes the rise of the coffee house in Tamil Nadu through an engaging combination of social and cultural history. Printed Pages: 336. 033290
