Dr D K Rangnekar was a leading public intellectual marked his presence as the editor of the Economic Times and later the Business Standard. This collection brings together a discerning selection of his writings that are organized across four themes: social and political dimensions of development; international context to India's experiment; planning and budgets; and industrial and economic policy. The writings begin in the early 1960s and end in 1984--at the cusp of radical transformation of India's economic policies and political fabric--thus providing an important handbook of the times.
