Abstract:

What happens when the demands of the global economy with all of its excess baggage of Westernizing forces collide with the deeply held traditions of an age-old culture like India's? Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Thomas L. Friedman heads to the heart of the conflict and examines how this clash of cultures is affecting the everyday lives of Indian workers, many of them young people, who are caught in the middle. Learn how this noble, proud society is coping with a struggle unlike any it's ever faced: balancing the desire to benefit from the opportunities offered by the new world market with internal efforts to protect their cultural heritage from the eroding influence of American values.
