"Asia Reborn"

As we had often come back to discussing economic benefits/impact of sports I thought it was about time for an economic discussion forum.

"Asia Reborn"

Post by PKBasu » Mon Jul 31, 2017 5:26 pm

Pardon my use of this forum to talk about my forthcoming book, "Asia Reborn: A continent rises from the ravages of Colonialism and War to a New Dynamism", which will be published by Aleph Books on 1st September. Some of you know that this has been in the works for awhile. I hope many of you will get to read once it is published.

Here is a small extract that has been published on an online web magazine: https://swarajyamag.com/world/nehrus-pe ... et-in-1950 (or try this https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/ ... ent=safari).

Other extracts should appear in a few other places over the course of this month.

Thank you for sharing, PKB. Wonderful extract and peek into the book on Swarajyamag and Aleph - hope its available soon digitally on the PlayStore / Other digital stores - would love a copy of it soon (especially given my limited knowledge in this sphere).

Congratulations, PKB! The grip you have on history combined with your love for economics, I am sure it will be a gold mine of information. I would love to get my hands on it whenever it becomes available.

That makes a great reading, PKB. A different perspective on how the freedom was achieved what all we have learned in history books. Would love to read more of this.
