The author and economic historian at Princeton's School of Public and International Affairs discusses his recently published book that examines India from its founding in 1947 to the present day.
From the publisher: In "India Is Broken A People Betrayed, Independence to Today" Ashoka Mody has penned a provocative new account of how India moved relentlessly from its hope-filled founding in 1947 to the dramatic economic and democratic breakdowns of today,
Combining statistical data with creative media, such as literature and cinema, to create strong, accessible, people-driven narratives, this book is a meditation on the interplay between democracy and economic progress, with lessons extending far beyond India. Mody proposes a path forward that is fraught with its own peril, but which nevertheless offers something resembling hope.
