Editorial Reviews


The fact that the authors have had a first-hand understanding and a ring-side view of Indian policy settings (in different capacities), and at the same time, the living experience of the international efforts to deal with the crises is reflected in their competent and insightful treatment of a most topical theme that continues to draw both heat and light, and animated engagement in the public space. Their effort is distinctive in that it provides an Indian perspective to the subject and fills an important gap in the swelling literature on the global crisis.

(Dr C Rangarajan)

For anyone interested in learning how the recent global financial crisis came about, how it impacted the world and India, and how the latter responded to the challenge posed by it, this book offers a clear and comprehensive one-stop analysis.

(Arvind Panagariya)

A large body of literature is already pouring in on the genesis, manifestation, and outcome of the worldwide meltdown, but few have taken the broad international view and combined it with an in-depth study of a large emerging economy. The authors of the book have done it, and done it successfully.

(Professor V S Vyas)

[The book] is notable for its breadth of coverage of issues directly and indirectly...highly informative...a must read for all those interested in the impact of global crisis on India...will be relevant for a long time to come.

(ASCI Journal of Management)
