The primary assertion of this book is to underline the roots of ‘Indian diplomacy’. In its analysis of the roots of Indian diplomacy, the author, Deep Kumar Datta-Ray, focuses on the diplomatic practices of the West. He argues that, due to the anarchic and binary approach, modern Western diplomacy was not able to unite the world because the denial of unity is the fundamental basis of this theory. In a reference to Hedley Bull, the dominant trope for diplomacy – anarchy – remains ‘the central fact of the international system and the starting place for theorizing about it’.

As a discipline of social sciences, economics in a contemporary light may hardly appear to be a branch of ethics ; most of what the discipline teaches and practices in one part seems to be extracted more from the application of science and scientific methods (in how to run an economy, optimally utilize economic resources, manage institutions etc.); while, the other part of the discipline seeks to study the nature and motivations attached with the behavioural choices made by people (famously studied in sub-fields of behavioural economics and applied microeconomics).

India is projected to dominate the digital platform economy by 2020. Conversations about the future of the platform economy in India are mostly framed through the prism of job creation, increased productivity and efficiency gains in an emerging economy. Enquiries into the quality and sustainability of jobs created and the broader societal effects of the platform economy are relegated to second-order concerns. But these two conversations need to be initiated in parallel. A conversation focused singularly on the numerical increase in jobs or net wealth creation will end up bypassing an important opportunity to steer the regulatory architecture of the digital economy towards inclusivity and social justice. Moreover, these conversations need to be localised to the Indian context and not readily borrow the terms of debate from the industrialised economies of North America and Western Europe, as is the tendency.
