Sub title: The Amazing Race between China's Hare and India's Tortoise
Author: Raghav Bahl
Is India ready for superpower status? Or are we irretrievably behind in the game of catch-up with China?
The dragon and elephant economies are together projected to dominate the world in a matter of decades. But in the race to superpower status, who is likely to breast the tape—China’s hare or India’s tortoise? At the end, it might come down to one deciding factor: Can India fix its governance before China repairs its politics?
With telling insights into the two Asian powers’ history, politics, economy and culture, Superpower? is a superbly documented, rich and comprehensive account of the race to dominance between the two neighbours.
