Abstract

300 China Review International: Vol. 24, No. 4, 2017 businesses which were relatively powerful welcomed FDI only to the extent it helped them. Secondly, local governments in China who were themselves planners and implementers had the authority to invite FDI and give it preferential treatment, but in India local officials were not used to economic planning which was left to the technocrats in the federal government who were influenced by business elites. This to a great extent explains the different fates of FDIs in the two countries studied here. Also, China’s lack of domestic capital permitted the government to open its arms to investors whereas India’s strong domestic business prevented a whole-hearted opening. Edited by an eminent historian and a reputed political scientist Beyond Regimes makes a very substantive contribution to the existing limited scholarly works which compare state-society interactions and relations in the two most populous nations of the world. The volume is a very useful addition to the literature on the emerging discipline, Sino-Indian Studies. Sreemati Chakrabarti Sreemati Chakrabarti retired as professor of Chinese Studies, University of Delhi. She is currently the Editor of China Report and Vice-Chairperson of the Institute of Chinese Studies, Delhi. Jia-Chen Fu.
