'Advance Praise Eye opener! Shifted my thinking about China and India's global impact' - Philip Kotler, Ph D S. C. Johnson, Distinguished Professor of International Marketing Marketing Department, Kellogg School of Management Northwestern University Prof. 'Jagdish Sheth does it again. He distills the implications of the growth of China and India through a wide ranging and thoughtful interpretation in "Chindia Rising" and its implications to global growth, prosperity, security and culture. A must read for all managers, politicians and security experts' - C.K. Prahalad Paul and Ruth McCracken, Distinguished University Professor, Ross School of Business The University of Michigan. 'Business leaders in East and West will surely read with interest Jagdish Sheth's thought provoking assessment of how the rise of China and India (Chindia) will prove to be an enormous boon to the worldwide economy. With his profound insight into global business trends, Prof. Sheth shows how Chindia's rise will not only stimulate the mature economies of the West but will also help birth economies in Asia, Africa, and Latin America' - Azim Premji, Chairman and Managing Director Wipro, Ltd. 'The rise of China and India will have a profound effect on businesses in the developed as well as the developing world. Any businessman who wants to be ready to benefit from these dramatic changes should read Dr Sheth's insightful book' - Patrick J. McGovern, Founder and Chairman International Data Group. 'With detailed analyses of companies, economic trends, and historical patterns, the noted business management scholar, Prof. Sheth convincingly suggests that the rise of China and India as 21st century global powers can be as beneficial to the world as was the rise of the US in the early 20th century. This is a useful source for not only business leaders but anyone interested in this tectonic shift that is underway in the world today' - Dr Vishakha N. Desai, President Asia Society. 'Jag Sheth has produced a thought provoking treatise on contemporary events involving China and India, which will have a major impact in the foreseeable future. India and China are the key players in globalization, that is changing the face of Asia, while transforming trade and commerce in the rest of the world. Sheth propounds an extremely well reasoned point of view of these developments, which will appeal to a wide cross section of readers around the world' - Ashok Ganguly Chairman, Firstsource Solutions & ABP Group. 'While there have been many paens sung to the phenomenal rise of Chindia (and BRIC's), by relating this rise contextually to US and European Economic and Commercial history, Jagdish Sheth has done us all a favor. This book not only makes it easier for us contextually, but also gives us insights into the huge challenges and exciting opportunities for the world. Finally, how Chindia affects the world will depend upon the qualities of the institutions they build. These will reflect their society, culture, aspirations and impact they wish to have on the world. This book gives us the first insights into some of the thinking in that direction' - Gautam Thapar, Chairman and CEO Avantha Group. 'Many articles and books have been written in the recent past on China and India, and their economic models and future. I find Prof. Jagdish Sheth's book "Chindia Rising" as a brilliant analysis of not only how China and India will occupy the prime position as two great economies in the future, but how they are different from economies that became success stories. Indeed in the 19th and 20th Century, Europe and U.S. were the main players, and later Japan and Korea, each followed a model based on their culture, resources, and markets. Both India and China are operating in a new environment, where capital is not scarce, entrepreneurship is a winner, globalization and communications is a reality for future growth, and we have abundance of bright human resources and huge domestic markets. These observations, and particularly the analysis of the differences between Western economies and Chindia, with enumerable examples, reads like a well researched case study; and certainly makes Prof. Sheth's book a 'Must Read' for all professional managers, entrepreneurs, economists, policy makers, and public at large. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the manuscript, and am grateful to Prof. Sheth for honoring me by sending me the manuscript before publication of this future best seller' - Suman Sinha, Chairman Bata India Ltd. '"Chindia Rising" is a visionary work encompassing multiplicity of dimensions of the unprecedented impact and influence of the two great nations, India and China, on the world's industrial, business and also political future of few hundred years. The book is destined to become a milestone and extensively studied by scholars, influencers of the international industrial scene and general public. Dr Sheth reminds the global business community of the fundamental significance of the economic rise of China and India. With his typical acuity, he sees beyond the temporary dislocations caused by outsourcing or trade imbalances and discovers a future of worldwide economic growth, job creation, and expanding opportunity. I strongly recommend this book to scholars, students, international business leaders and general readers' - Dr KRS Murthy CEO and Vice Chairman of the Board SUNrgi--Power of 1000 Suns. 'The Chindia phenomena is at its nascent stage. The world hasn't seen anything like it. The book comes at an appropriate time and evaluates the subject holistically. The large domestic market, the huge, young and growing population, the realization of the future imperatives by the respective governments, the compulsions of multinationals and the rise of private enterprise all are working in favor of China and India. The book will enable both governments and enterprises to think about the challenges of becoming a dominant global force, employability of the youth, issues preventing the rural-urban divide, sustainability, collaborative energy, security, patents and IPR issues. Every citizen of the world must read it' - Rajeev Karwal, Founder Director MILAGROW. 'What indeed jumps out is the new first generation companies emerging from China and India who are now global players. The sheer scale of Brownian movement of entrepreneurs in both the countries is moving the two global economies to operate globally; reading "Chindia Rising" is like reading a business thriller' - Sudhir Sethi, Founding Chairman & Managing Director IDG Ventures India Bangalore, India. 'So appropriate is the name of this book, "Chindia Rising". I have focused and worked within the Indian and Chinese business communities for three decades, and I have personally seen the growth and the positioning of 'Chindia' to accelerate far beyond the expectations of the global community. Dr Sheth continues to identify trends in the global economic landscape and so astutely explains how those trends impact our daily lives. I predict that this book will become a best seller and will continue the significant success that Dr Sheth has had within the global economic spectrum. Dr Sheth so clearly explains this trend of "Chindia Rising" that a reader can grasp the enormity of this trend while reading his book' - Kenneth A. Cutshaw, Honorary Consul of India Business Executive and Global Attorney.
