157 "increasing penetration of the industrial development efforts by foreign mono- poly capital" (p. 171) are more responsible for India's poor economic perform- ance than are the structural obstacles to which he devotes the body of the text. Shah could be correct: some form of "massive structural and social revolu- tion" (p. 176) may be necessary to speed the pace of economic development. But the prospects appear dim that India's goals can be achieved by accepting his advice to transfer political and economic leadership to those identified only as "classes in the system that have no vested interests" (pp. 168-169). Presum- ably, if such classes exist, their greater wisdom would automatically hasten the establishment of a self-reliant (autarkic?), economically abundant, socialist society. What resources are available, how they are to be allocated, how the decision-making process is to be organized, and what groups will be called upon to bear the costs of transforming India into a Utopian state are questions the author fails even to ask.
