Shashi Tharoor, Member of Parliament, former cabinet minister, and well-known author, has written a very thoughtful review of our new volume, Rethinking Public Institutions in India. Tharoor, who has written about the infirmities of the Indian state before, covers a lot of ground in his essay for OPEN Magazine. He ends with these kind words:
This impressive, dense volume offers an enormous amount of material on where our public institutions stand and how they could do better. It will reward the serious student of public administration as well as the concerned lay reader. One can only hope that it will not be too long before things improve to the point where a new edition is required.
