On the other hand, a McKinsey Global Inc. report suggests that if India continues its recent growth, it will be the fifth largest consumer economy in the world by 2025. With more than a billion citizens - almost 18 percent ofthe world's population - India is a reflection of over 5,000 years of interaction and exchange across a wide spectrum of cultures and civilizations. India Today: an encyclopedia of life in the republic describes the growth and development of the nation since it achieved independence from the British Raj in 1947. The two-volume work presents an analytical review of India's transition from fledgling state to the world's largest democracy and potential economic superpower. Providing current data and perspective backed by historical context as appropriate, the encyclopedia brings together the latest scholarship on India's diverse cultures, societies, religions, political cultures, and social and economic challenges. It covers such issues as foreign relations, security, and economic and political developments, helping readers understand India's people and appreciate the nation's importance as a political power and economic force, both regionally and globally."--"@en ;
