            'A must-read. Acemoglu and Robinson are intellectual heavyweights of the first rank . . . erudite and fascinating' Paul Collier, Guardian, on Why Nations Fail In this profoundly important follow up to their global bestseller, Acemoglu and Robinson provide a powerful new framework... for looking at countries' development through the way that the state interacts with society. This conceptualisation - in which any country can be located on a simple diagram and its future predicted - is new and based on decades of their research. The power distribution between state and society affects how peaceful societies are, what types of institutions develop, how much oppression and fear people suffer, how their economies are organized, and how rich they are. Full of entertaining stories from the past (it starts with the wife of a Nigerian ruler fleeing Abuja with 38 suitcases of cash), Balance of Power sheds light on issues from the present and has practical political ideas for the future. 'An intellectually rich book that develops an important thesis with verve' Martin Wolf, Financial Times, on Why Nations Fail

            The book explores the interaction of political parties, bureaucracy, media, judiciary, and civil society groups in shaping policy in contemporary India. By researching the evolution of nine major legislations using a consistent lens, the work interrogates the suitability of exist...ing political theories to explain the policy development process in an emerging economy like India. It covers recent events such as the agitation for the Jan Lokpal Bill and the Nirbhaya case that have underlined the role of non-government players in law-making in India as well as long-standing movements like for right to information, right to education, and food security.
