Only just saw this in a bookstore yesterday. Well, I am looking very forward to reading this book. Is Stephen Cullenberg still on OPE-L? Yours, Rakesh Transition and Development in India by Anjan Chakrabarti, Stephen Cullenberg Paperback: 256 pages * Publisher: Routledge; (February 2003) * ISBN: 0415934869 Editorial Reviews Book Description According to Nehru, the transition from a backward agricultural society to a modern industrial society was the only possible road for India to progress. So for the last few decades, India has been moving away from state intervention in the economy towards a liberalized market economy. Transition and Development in India challenges the current basis of development theories in India, laying the groundwork for an alternative, Marxist approach to transition in India. Cullenberg and Chakrabarti offer a detailed and critical study of the theories of transition in India, including debates on modes of production and subaltern studies. In doing so, they also provide an analysis of Marxist theories of development in general, ending by presenting an entirely new Marxist framework for transition that should apply not just to India, but to all developing nations. About the Author Stephen Cullenburg is Professor of Economics at the University of California, Riverside and a former editor of Rethinking Marxism. Anjan Chakrabarti is Professor of Economics at the University of Calcutta.
