With a population second only to China's and the birthplace of Hinduism and Buddhism, it is hard to dispute India's central role in both the history of Asian culture and in the defining position it enjoys today. Although India has grabbed media attention for its armed conflict with Pakistan, it is a nation perhaps more notable for its internal diversity and challenges than for a single external conflict. "India: A Global Studies Handbook" unites the geography, history, culture, notable people, and events into a wide-ranging yet concise work that brings this fascinating land to the page. Of interest to academic and general audiences, this volume presents an uncomplicated look at the varied, bustling nation of India. From geography that includes the Himalayas to a cultural fabric built upon the often-criticized caste system, India remains a land of mystery and intrigue.

Second only to China in the magnitude of its economic miracle and second to none in its potential to shape the new century, India is fast undergoing one of the most momentous transformations the world has ever seen. In this panoramic book, Patrick French chronicles that epic change, telling human stories to explain a larger national narrative. Melding on-the-ground reports with a deep knowledge of history, French exposes the cultural foundations of India's political, economic and social complexities. He reveals how a nation identified with some of the most wretched poverty on earth has simultaneously developed an envied culture of entrepreneurship.

"Over the last two decades, many of India's leading companies have been achieving double-digit growth - even in the midst of a global recession. Understanding what is driving the Indian business juggernaut is an imperative no manager - in any part of the world - can afford to ignore." "In this timely book, professors Peter Cappelli, Harbir Singh, Jitendra Singh, and Michael Useem of the Wharton School India Team reveal the secrets of India's top-performing companies: an innovative, unconventional, and exportable set of management principles they call the "India Way." The authors argue that the India Way could have the same remarkable impact that Japanese business leaders and the "Toyota Way" had on manufacturing around the world: it could change the practice - and purpose - of management on a global scale."
