Rogue Elephant: Harnessing the Power of India's Unruly Democracy

  • Wednesday, Jul 23, 2014
  • Please join us for the launch of a new book that exposes the battles taking places across India between powerful vested interests and those trying to foster change. By delving into many of the country’s most troublesome issues, from gender relations to education and corruption to populist politics, Simon Denyer, former India bureau chief for the Washington Post, captures the problems facing India today, the forces demanding change, and how we might expect the new Modi government to deal with these issues. This event will be followed by a reception.
