India today is a vibrant free-market democracy, a nation well on its way to overcoming decades of widespread poverty. The nationís rise is one of the great international stories of the late twentieth century, and inIndia Unboundthe acclaimed columnist Gurcharan Das offers a sweeping economic history of India from independence to the new millennium.

Das shows how Indiaís policies after 1947 condemned the nation to a hobbled economy until 1991, when the government instituted sweeping reforms that paved the way for extraordinary growth. Das traces these developments and tells the stories of the major players from Nehru through today. As the former CEO of Proctor & Gamble India, Das offers a unique insiderís perspective and he deftly interweaves memoir with history, creating a book that is at once vigorously analytical and vividly written. Impassioned, erudite, and eminently readable,India Unboundis a must for anyone interested in the global economy and its future.
