The Eruption of Delhi
Capital offers a glimpse of what capitalism will become in the coming, post-Western world.
A grim picture of a city run by oligarchs and the 'new black-money elite,' where success depends on 'influence, assets, and connections.' This book is highly recommended for anyone looking for background information on Delhi…The author’s account of the downside of the post-1991 free market economy and the pursuit of self-interest above all serves as a cautionary tale, doing for Delhi what Suketu Mehta's Maximum City accomplished for Mumbai. - Library Journal (starred)
