Review: Tide Players

CHP21071 300x215 Review: Tide PlayersCongratulations are due to Jianying Zha, ICI representative and Senior Advisor, who has received a glowing review from Financial Times for her most recent book Tide Players.

Tide Players depicts the new generation of movers and shakers who are at the forefront of a rapidly changing China. By skillfully weaving together a half dozen portraits of various Chinese citizens, Zha offers a compelling view of China that few Western readers have seen before. This is not the China that one reads about in Western media, uniformly repressing dissent and controlling all aspects of society. Instead, Zha shows the experiences of a wide array of society, from intellectuals to business tycoons, all of whom both confront and conform to Chinese society and government expectations.

Tide Players is available from The New Press and at bookstores near you.

Understanding India's New Political Economy: A Great Transformation?

Understanding India’s New Political Economy: A Great Transformation?

Edited by Sanjay Ruparelia and Sanjay Reddy

Two of India China Institute’s most esteemed scholars, former ICI Fellow Sanjay Ruparelia (2008-2010) and longtime ICI Advisor Sanjay Reddy have collaborated with scholars John Harriss and Stuart Corbridge to produce this exciting new volume highlighting the changes occurring during India’s current political environment.

Focusing on the last three decades, this compilation of essays fills in a gap in existing literature by looking at three large-scale political transformations; the advent of liberal economic reform, the ascendance of Hindu cultural nationalism, and the empowerment of historically subordinate classes through popular democratic mobilizations.

Conceived in part during a conference held by ICI, this volume epitomizes the type of academic connections across discipline and national borders that ICI makes it its mission to promote.
