India: Facts & Figures

Mohan M. Mathews (Author)
Synopsis India : Facts and Figures is not just a statistical compendium. It analyses and constructs concise overviews, and enables facts and figures to provide an illustration of the problem or topic being considered. The ranking of India’s performance in social, economic, agricultural and industrial parameters shows the relevance of the country in international trade and diplomacy. India is the land of many firsts. It is the largest producer of milk. Progress, though slow, has made India the country with the largest number of female professors, doctors and surgeons. She is the world’s second largest software exporter. The paradox is complete when considering the fact that the rates of telephone penetration and internet connectivity in this country are among the lowest in the world. Naturalist and environmental researchers will find an informative overview of all the major issues and relevant legislation from renewable energy to biopiracy and forest and wildlife conservation. Aspects and issues that conflict with the interests of indigenous people have also been addressed. The chapters on women and children make the book of prime interest to development agencies, NGOs, UN bodies and other international organisations and institutions of social science research and advocacy. The book will be of great help to the media to present a well-balanced approach to the issues that confront a nation with a rich heritage, striving to take its rightful place in the comity of nations. The book is unique in that it contains a plethora of information on a wide range of topics condensed into a single volume, making it an invaluable reference handbook for everyone. Research institutions, libraries, indologists, social workers, journalists, environmentalists, diplomats and businessmen would all benefit greatly from this book.
