"...Pradhan’s book caters to varied tastes: to researchers interested in the relevance of received theory for an explanation of the recent growth in India’s OFDI; to readers interested in details on the scale, composition and regional distribution of India’s OFDI; to those who relish case studies and detailed review of policy; and, of course, to those who savour sophisticated econometric techniques. Pradhan deserves to be congratulated on producing a book which caters to a diverse readership on an important development in India’s recent economic history." Prof. V.N. Balasubramanyam, Department of Economics, Lancaster University Management School, Lancaster 

"This well-documented and insightful study of the rise of Indian multinationals is a must-read for anyone interested in the rise of such firms from emerging markets." Karl P. Sauvant, Executive Director, Columbia Program on International Investment (CPII), Columbia University, New York

“This comprehensive book on outward FDI by Indian multinationals is not only timely but also a rich treat with rigorous analysis. Discrete policy implications brought forth in this engaging exercise deserve serious attention by scholars, policy makers and those observing globalizing India.” Keshab Das, Professor, Gujarat Institute of Development Research, Ahmedabad, India.

“Jaya Prakash Pradhan has produced a valuable work, which contributes to filling the research gap on a key feature of the globalizing world economy: the growth of developing country multinationals. In spite of the contemporary importance and topicality of the issue, the base of available research is still significantly lacking. Dr. Pradhan’s book offers pioneering and indispensable analysis of the various facets of emerging multinationals from India. Not only researchers, policy makers and students but anybody who wants to understand better the changing geography and dynamics of global production will benefit from the many insights offered.” 
Peter Gammeltoft, Associate Professor, Copenhagen Business School, Frederiksberg, Denmark

“This is an excellent source book both for researchers and practitioners who are interested in the dynamics of Indian FDI” MannSoo Shin, Professor, Korea University Business School, Seoul, Korea
