Review of Michael Kidron's book on private foreign investment in India. The reviewer notes that the book is the first to look at the entire subject in a historical, political and economic sense. Previous studies have dealt with individual cases of private foreign investment. Western economists, as well as Indian economists, should find the book especially useful in determining whether India actually benefits from the investments. 6 pp.
