ABOUT THE BOOK :

Founded in 1958 by the great academic visionary and institution-builder Professor V.K.R.V. Rao, the Institute of Economic Growth, Delhi today ranks amongst the premier research institutes of the country. It is always the people belonging to an institution who are responsible for its greatness. Commemorating the fiftieth year of the Institute, several illustrious members of the ‘IEG family’, including present faculty, the former faculty, visiting fellows and Ph.D. students, have come forward to share their thoughts, memories and feelings for their institute—the IEG.

With 36 chapters in six parts, 17 boxes and 26 photographs, this festschrift volume also reflects the evolution of research in social sciences at the IEG during the period 1958-2007. These recollections and reflections together provide an interesting insight into how the institution was set up and how it has evolved and contributed to research, training, teaching and policymaking. The small anecdotes throughout the book—in the form of boxes, reflecting informal profiles of some distinguished academics as also aspects of campus life—provide an interesting read. The book would be of interest not only to economists, sociologists and all those who have been associated with the IEG in some way or the other, but also to the general reader as it makes for an absorbing read.
