Juggernaut is proud to publish A NEW INDIA: Selected Writings 2014-19 by Arun Jaitley – an authoritative account of the policies and decisions of the BJP government from a central figure of the administration
Today, on Arun Jaitley’s birthday, we are proud to announce that we’re publishing A New India by Arun Jaitley in February 2020. In this book – published posthumously – Arun Jaitley offers the clearest, most authoritative discussions on the policies of BJP’s reforms and analyses the state of the government of 2014–19.
Surveying the sweeping changes that the country has seen in the last five years – GST, demonetisation, Kashmir – he is also prescient about the big political trends in the country, such as the end of dynastic politics, the fissures among regional powers and the crisis in the Congress party.
Forcefully and astutely argued, A New India is an important book, one that comprehensively maps and explains the BJP’s reforms and analyses the state of the nation.
“Arun Jaitley was one of India’s most influential politicians, and a central figure in the BJP government of 2014-19. This is the definitive book from him about the current BJP era and its policies.” – Chiki Sarkar, Publisher & Founder, Juggernaut Books
