Description About The Author:- Nikhil Chakravartty, is first and foremost. A perspicacious observer of both domestic and international developments, he laces lucidity with elegance in his style of writing. With his contacts ranging from the highest in the political firmament to the lowliest newsman, he brings a peerless insight to his commentaries on current affairs. He is the editor of Mainstream weekly. A former editor of the Financial Express, N.s. Jagnnathan combines expertise in economic affairs with a facility for unpedantic expression. He is presently a columnist for the Indian Express group of newspapers. George Mathew is a social scientist associated with radical movements like Independent Initiative. He is the director of the Institute for Social Studies, New Delhi. Balraj Puri is an acknowledged authority on Kashmir on which he has written extensively and perceptively. As a leader of the former Praja Socialist Party, he played an active part in the state politics. Dev Dutt is a senior journalist of New Delhi, who was earlier editing a journal of radical opinion. The volume is edited by G.S. Bharagava, a veteran journalist and a noted author. He was earlier a resident editor of Indian Express and Principal Information Officer to the Government of India (1978-80).Contents:- The Contributors • Introduction: • Perestroika in India • Vishwanath Pratap Singh: A Thumbnail Sketch • The Agenda • The Economic Outlook • The Challenge of Kashmir • Secular Ethos and Minorities • A Transitional Phase • Security: Hobson's Choice • India and Her Neighbours • Vox Populi • Appendices • Broadcast to the Nation • First Press Conference • The Action Plan • Index.About The Book:- The Assumption Of India'S Prime Ministership By Vishwanath Pratap Singh Has Been Marked By What Can Be Called An Unprecedently Questioning Attitude By The Thinking Public, Instead Of The Euphoria Which Normally Accompanies Such A Sweeping Political Change. Reinforcing It Are A Healthy Skepticism About The Ability Of The New Government To Live Up To Its Electoral Commitment And A Gnawing Apprehension About The Longevity Of The New Dispensation. As The Soviet Experience With Perestroika Has Shown, Reform And Restructuring Bring In Their Wake More Problems Than The Establishment Set Out To Solve. The Leadership Has To Hack Its Way Through The Thicket With Understanding And Determination. So It Has Been With V.P. Singh'S Prime Ministership. The Changing Political Scenario, The Daunting Economic Situation With Massive Poverty And Selective Plenty Coexisting In An Unviable Coalition, The Erosion Of Institutions Coupled With Dilution Of Values In Public Life-Not To Mention Thorny Problems Like Kashmir And Punjab-Confront The Leadership Which Has To Live And Thrive By Its Record In Office And Not By Glib Talk. The Contributions Compiled In This Book Examine In Depth The Problems As Well As The Way They Are Being Tackled By The V.P. Singh Government. It Is Much More Than A Progress Report Because It Focuses On The Problems And Their Varying Nature Against A Background Of Desirable Ways Of Dealing With Them. The Appraisal Is Hardnosed And Critical, Even It Friendly In Outlook Because "Only A Friendly In Outlook Because "Only A Friend Warns, The Enemy Strikes.", About The Author:- Nikhil Chakravartty, Is First And Foremost.
