Abstract or Description

This is one of the earliest books to present a collection of writings on the effects of globalization on India and Indian society. The editors have assembled a team of eminent academics to present a series of critical discussions about important issues of economy and agriculture, education and language, and culture and religion, based on ethnographic case studies from different localities in India. Globalizing India is a major contribution to South Asian Studies, interrogating a topic of contemporary importance – both within the region and internationally.
