Reviews

“When the world is focusing on the economic rivalry between India and China at their front door, this book draws attention to the backyards of these two emerging powers: the well-being of their people. Its comparative focus of economic, social as well as cultural factors distinguishes it from most other writings on the subject.” (Jack W. K. Chan, Associate Professor, Sun Yat-sen University, China)
