Summary: Over the past two decades India has grown at an unprecedented rate, rivalled only by China. Yet while the Bollygarchs revel in the riches of their new dynasties, millions languish in their shadows, still trapped in the teeming slums of the country's megacities. From the sky terrace of the world's most expensive home to mass political rallies in the streets, James Crabtree documents the struggle between equality and privilege playing out at the heart of this emerging superpower. Against a combustible backdrop of aspiration, class and caste, reformers strive to bring down the corrupt tycoons and the political power brokers who enable them. The Billionaire Raj is a vivid portrait of a divided nation whose future will shape the world.
