Business and Polity: Dynamics of a Changing Relationship by D N Ghosh (Sage Publications, New Delhi), 2011; pp XLIV+422, Rs 795.

Crisis of Indian Polity

The crisis of the Indian polity we are witnessing today is essentially a recurrence of what the country has experienced periodically almost at regular intervals in its long sweep of history. The disintegration of the imperial unities on numerous occasions in the past was because those who succeeded their creators failed to display the qualities and virtues necessary for nurturing their inheritance, likewise, the post-independence generation has been moving away from the spirit and ethos generated during the freedom movement. In such condition, even India's resilience may prove to be too weak against a continuing string of divisive policies and actions.

JAPAN- Turning to Third World

December 21-28, 1985 JAPAN Turning to Third World Dwijendra Tripathi ADDRESSING the Japanese Diet (parliament) during his recent visit to this country, Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi expressed the hope that the relations between his country and Japan would not be limited to the marketplace alone. On the face of it, the statement may represent nothing more than mere rhetoric of a visiting dignitary. For, at present even the marketplace contact between Japan and the third world nations, among whom India occupies a prominent place, is not very impressive if we exclude the Southeast Asian region which incorporates only a few non-aligned countries. There are some straws in the wind, however, to indicate that in the years to come the industrial giant of the Pacific would gradually move closer to the third world

An Integrated View of Entrepreneurship

Dwijendra Tripathi The terms 'entrepreneur' and 'entrepreneurship' have generated considerable debate in recent years. However, there is considerable conceptual confusion about these terms which helps neither entrepreneurial research nor the programmes for entrepreneurial development. The paper seeks to clarify this confusion of concepts by examining the historical evolution of the term and the changes in its conceptual meaning. Based on this analysis the author presents a schema for understanding the process of entrepreneurship. The author concludes that although entrepreneurship must remain confined to the economic sphere it cannot be comprehended without reference to factors other than the economic alone.

Indian Entrepreneurship in Historical Perspective- A Re - interpretation

Although, in theory, the entrepreneur as the organiser of the factors of production has been recognised as the central figure in economic development, scholars of Indian economic history have tended to ignore this element in their studies. The tendency has been to stress the sociological factors such as caste or religion or to blame the policies of the British government for the backwardness of the country.
