Democracy and Economic Change in India

Front Cover
University of California Press, 1966 - India - 335 pages
This is a book about the political revolution that occurred in India in 1947, and the associated political, social, and economic changes that have followed from the upheavals of that year. The book specifically examines how the political changes of Indian Independence led to shifts in political and economic power and thus to the economic development policies of the Plans; how these policies in turn influenced the distribution of political power since Independence; and finally how the changing character of political and economic power influences potential economic policies for the future of India.
