The book brings together insights from academics as well as practitioners, and it covers the waterfront in terms of institutions-from parliament to the RBI, and from the Supreme Court to regulatory agencies. It helps provide a framework for how ordinary Indians can make sense of what is a widely-held notion: that the government in Delhi often does not work the way it should. The book not only offers a diagnosis of the problem, but it offers lessons for how to improve governance in the years to come.
