"Impeccably researched...a wonderfully detailed look at India today." - Publishers Weekly
"Few outsiders know modern India's politics, society and history as well as Alyssa Ayres. In Our Time Has Come, she chronicles India's extraordinary rise and its future as a great global power." - Nicholas Burns, former Undersecretary of State, U.S. State Department; Roy and Barbara Goodman Family Professor of the Practice of Diplomacy and International Relations, Harvard Kennedy School
"Alyssa Ayres has blended a keen sense of the possibilities with a clear-eyed grasp of the complexities to produce the most cogent and compelling account to date of India's emergence on the world stage. She gives her readers easy access to her perspectives as scholar and policymaker, without shying away from the hard questions. Our Time Has Come is a tremendous piece of work." - Jake Sullivan, Martin R. Flug Visiting Lecturer, Yale Law School; former Deputy Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; former National Security Advisor to Vice President Joe Biden
"Alyssa Ayres has emerged as the country's leading scholar and practitioner on India, and this well-crafted book reaffirms her status. She skillfully captures the moment we are witnessing...India emerging as a leading power...in this exceptionally interesting and important account of the country to watch in the twenty-first century." - Rich Verma, U.S. Ambassador to India, 2015 to 2017; Vice Chairman, The Asia Group

Kaye, Co-CEO, Warburg Pincus
"Our Time Has Come is a splendid survey of the possibilities, problems, and prospects associated with India's ascendancy on the global stage. In describing how India is transforming the global order without revisionism, Alyssa Ayres lays bare the uniqueness of India's rise and compellingly argues for a strong U.S. partnership with India to strengthen the liberal international order." - Ashley Tellis, Tata Chair for Strategic Affairs, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
"Lucid and erudite" - The Wall Street Journal

It is not a history book, but rather a book about present affairs and the foreseeable future. The author weaves in history both ancient and recent to show us how we arrived at the present. And as the present defined in the collective wisdom, the author pulls together information from surprising number of thought leaders.
equally important for scholars , investors and informed general readers ... Having followed India for several decades ,
I have rarely seen an analysis like this ...Ayers ability to understand and explain the transformation taking place in India ,
relate it to the future and project its impact on regional and global affairs makes this book essential reading for anyone
concerned with international relations . If there is any one book that embraces the totality of the Indian prospect , this is it !
