Datt & Sundharam Indian Economy




Authors present a comprehensive survey of the Indian Economy in terms of GDP growth, savings, investment and developments in various sectors like agriculture, industry and services. A contradiction observed in India is that while the reform process has resulted in boosting GDP growth, it has failed to yield acceleration in the process of poverty reduction and growth of employment.

A thorough revision of the book was necessitated by these rapid changes taking place in the Indian Economy. Readers will appreciate that economic scenarios, both at the global and national levels, have been changing continuously. It has been our endeavor to introduce new analysis by way of adding new section and revising existing chapters for a better understanding of the evolving problems and opportunities for the Indian Economy. A new chapter namely 'The Approach Paper to the Twelfth Five Year Plan (2012-17)' has recently been added in the book.

India's Struggle For Independence takes the reader on a journey across India as she was craving for her Independence. This book starts at the very first revolt of 1857 under the guidance of Mangal Pandey, from Rani Lakshmi Bai’s innate passion to free her country, Subhash Chandra Bose’s unmatched charisma and aggressive tactics, to Mahatma Gandhi’s famous civil disobedience and non-cooperation movement, to the final victory in 1947 when the British Raj finally came to an end.
The book reflects a coherent narrative as it incorporates the existing historiographical advances and yet provides an utterly new and clear view of this period in Indian history.
