Karthik has a review of our book here in his excellent blog. And I agree with most of his observations and critiques.
Swarajya has an extract from our book on policy prescriptions to improve state capacity. This is a pet theme for me and I am convinced that it significantly diminishes the effectiveness of every other reform. Governance or reform in a weak state setting is almost like running a sprint while carrying a very heavy backpack. Heck, even Swachh Bharat requires state capacity!
