Book Review: Misra, D.C. (2009): Review of Sharma (2009): The Long Revolution: The Birth and Growth of India’s IT Industry

Book Review
Misra, D.C. (2009): Review of Sharma (2009): The Long Revolution: The Birth and Growth of India’s IT Industry
This is an account* of growth of India’s information technology (IT) industry since 1940s to the early 2000s- nearly past seventy years. Very well researched and fully documented, it has been written in a highly readable style. According to the author, several factors- government policies, higher technical educational facilities, the entrepreneurial spirit, the presence of multinational companies, and skill shortages in Western countries have contributed to the spectacular growth of IT industry in India. To this reviewer it is not a book but a service to India’s IT community. No one interested in India’s IT industry can afford to miss to read it. Highly recommended.
