Globalisation has emerged as a very powerful force affecting the whole world. In case of Third World Countries it is manifest in the introduction of a set of neoliberal reforms at the behest of multilaterals such as the World Bank and International Monetary fund under the tutelage of the trinity of advanced capitalist countries headed by u.s. representing the interests of global finance and corporates, but also with the cooperation of ruling regimes in many instances. Such reforms have been introduced in India starting with the BoP crises of 1991, which marks a clear shift in the model of development adopted in the country, from a state-directed model to a market-centred model. Globalisation amply benefits the privileged all over but adversely affects the marginalised peoples and countries in the world. This book provides a theoretico-conceptual overview of globalisation, and an analysis of state-level reforms, and the social, cultural and political dimensions of globalisation and reforms in India.This volume will be of much interest to researchers, teachers and students, The issues discussed in the volume will also draw the attention of civil society organisations and NGOs engaged in advocacy activities.
