The periodization, the 1760s to the 1880s, enables Sinha to identify better the continuities and discontinuities within the circulation of people, goods and ideas in India before and after the 1850s advent of railways.’ —Professor Ian J.

India and the World Bank: The Politics of Aid and Influence Jason A. Kirk This book analyzes the politics of aid and influence between the Bank and its largest borrower.

The Anti-Politics Machine in India: State, Decentralization and Participatory Watershed Development Vasudha Chhotray An innovative assessment of the validity of ‘anti-politics’ critiques of development in the peculiar context of India.

‘This timely and empathetic but not uncritical policy analysis forcefully argues for an urgent debate within India over the continued need for concessional IDA funding - even as India graduates to middle-income status - to serve the interests of India, particularly of its poor in the lagging states.’ —Baldev Raj Nayar, Professor Emeritus, Department of Political Science, McGill University, and author of ‘The Myth of the Shrinking State: Globalization and the State in India’

‘Vasudha Chhotray has written an intelligent, incisive and sometimes witty account of the politics of anti-politics in contemporary India. Her important book shows us that bureaucratic development is never anti-political, however anodyne many of its formulations have become; rather, is political in particular ways and with important social consequences.’ —Stuart Corbridge, Professor of Development Studies, London School of Economics and Political Science

We are fortunate that Bangwei Wang and Tansen Sen have gathered together nearly two dozen of Bagchi’s best and most representative pieces, and should be particularly grateful that they have taken such care to reproduce Bagchi’s papers so accurately, down to the last demanding diacritical.’ — Professor Victor H.
