Lost Glory : India's Capitalism Story, Hardback Book


Lost Glory: India's Capitalism Story deconstructs India's industrialization story, challenging contemporary ideas about her economy.

Based on careful and detailed empirical analyses of India's industrialization, for a period of almost seven decades, the book provides deeply-nuanced depictions of the history of political economy, that have affected India's industrialization over the course of a century.

These dimensions of India's economic history have neverbefore been collated and presented.

The presentation takes readers on a definitive evidence-based survey of India's industrial landscape.

It includes a detailed historical description of the intellectual origins of India's modern industrialization, anchored in a privileged view of economic policy making.

Grounded in deep historical and political analyses, that account for the variations, continuities, and changes in institutional contingencies, the facts derived on India's long-term economic performance are used to put the recordstraight.

The findings of the book will transform debate, and set the agenda for thoughtfully assessing what course the Indian economy needs to follow.
