A war like hysteria has gripped the Indian ruling class, which was initiated by Manmohan Singh and his sycophants especially in the 2nd term of the Congress led UPA, that India must become a superpower at any cost. In their mad pursuit of 8-9% growth rate, this government run by the four legged species that include Manmohan Singh, Montek Singh Ahluwalia, P Chidambaram and Pranab Mukerhjee are running a circus show by putting the lives of ordinary people in great danger.
RICHARD McGREGOR previously worked as the China correspondent for the Australian. This book is a summary of his observations of how the role of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has evolved over the last decade. McGregor does not come from a Marxist or even a left standpoint. Nor has he made, even from a capitalist point of view, a serious study of the Stalinist states that existed in the past. For example, when he wants to give a definition of a ‘Leninist’ state he approvingly quotes the characterisation of arch-reactionary ‘historian’ Robert Service.
