Title: Book Review - India’s Turn: Understanding the Economic Transformation

Abstract: This book is about institutionalizing orderliness at workplace. The author contends that the present-day organizations are characterized by chaos and disorder, and correcting this situation is the primary motivation behind his book. Drawing upon the experiences of several organizations, he suggests many ways of reducing disorder and increasing harmony at workplace. In fact the author often takes a wide sweep and draws from several disciplines (e.g., sociology, psychology) and sources (e.g., scholarly work, popular articles). This style of research and writing is both enriching and problematic. Such a diversity of sources is likely to appeal to the readers who have not cultivated a specialized interest in human behavior at workplace. However, the author has not been able to methodically fuse the diversity of perspectives and data sources into a coherent whole that will appeal to a researcher of organizational behavior.
