According to Nehru, the transition from a backward agricultural society to a modern industrialized society was the only road for India to progress. So, for the past few decades, India has focused its transitional development around movement away from a state-controlled economy toward that of a free market economy. Transition and Development in India challenges the current basis of this theory of development, laying the groundwork for an entirely new Marxist approach to transition that should apply not just to India, but to all developing nations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Cullenberg and Chakrabarti's work on India succeeds beautifully in rethinking many of the classical Marxist understandings of class, labor, history, and change, yet within an engaged, committed critique of capitalist political economy.."
-Lisa Lowe, co-editor of "The Politics of Culture in the Shadow of Capital
"An energetic, imaginative defense of postmodern Marxist theory. More impressively, they have provided a lucid and utterly undogmatic analysis of the moment of economic transition. This book will be useful for all those interested in contemporary changes not only in India but also the rest of the world.."
-Amitava Kumar, author of "Bombay-London-New York
"The authors do an admirable job of reviewing the relevant literature on the 'transition to capitalism' in India, formulating important points of criticism of that literature, and presenting their alternative notion of transition and applying it to the current debate concerning economic liberalization in India. Their treatment is both thorough and balanced, providing both background material for relative novices and challenging theses for more advanced readers.."
-David Ruccio, co-author of "Postmodern Moments in Modern Economics
"Transition and Development in India will irritate, and hopefully stimulate, orthodox Marxists and non-Marxists alike. Chakrabarti and Cullenberg dissect the debates in India over modes of production and subaltern studies and offer a reformulated, postmodernist Marxist theory to shed light on the economic reforms introduced in India after 1991. This book is essential reading for those who want to know the direction in which modern Marxism is going.."
-Keith Griffin, author of"Alternative Strategies for Economic Development
