Reviews
Review Quotes
As evident from the title of the book, it is relevant to not only researchers focusing on the particular region but also the students of South Asian studies.The book is a very good combination of papers analysing significant socio-political, economic and strategic challenges faced by most of the South Asian countries.
This book presents very pertinent views of intellectuals, political analysts and economists and must be read to get an understanding of why South Asia needs to reduce poverty among the general population, build good governance and efficient implementation of policies and finally continually upgrade its infrastructure to achieve economic growth.
