New York Times Bestselling Author of Breakout Nations and The Rise and Fall of Nations.
India is a country obsessed by politics. In 2019, it faced national elections, and urgent questions presented themselves: will India continue down a path of populism and increasingly strident Hindu nationalism or will it return to its postcolonial secular vision?
Is the long-promised economic boom finally at hand, or is some form of socialism part of India's DNA? Will the seemingly invincible Modi triumph again, or will India revert to its habit of throwing out incumbents?
Bestselling author Ruchir Sharma has been on the road during Indian elections for twenty years and here distills the wisdom of his observations and experiences over that time in a deeply insightful book about the world's largest and most complex exercise in democracy.
