Fighting Corruption in India's Unruly Democracy

A supporter takes a picture of a map of India made of flowers with a picture of BJP leader Narendra Modi on it at the party's headquarters on May 16, 2014 in Ahmedabad, India.

Simon Denyer, former Indian bureau chief for the Washington Post, looks at the characters that are agitating for change in India. He discusses the country's most troublesome issues—from corruption to populist politics, from gender relations to education, analyzes the India's economic malaise, its growing middle class, and its politics. In Rogue Elephant: Harnessing the Power of India's Unruly Democracy Denyer explores the battle between the deep-rooted system of graft and patronage and the forces demanding change and supporting democracy.
