Description for Standing Guard: A Year in Opposition

Review

This volume commends itself for its treatment of contemporary issues drawing from Mr Chidambaram s extensive experience of over three decades in national politics and high-level economic policy-making. Bon aperitif. --Y.V. Reddy Former Governor, Reserve Bank of India

I hope more politicians follow Chidambaram s example and take to the print media to share their views on important issues when not in office. It will help them to rethink their own positions afresh. It will also vastly enrich our public discourse. Finally, it will enable the public to hold them to the promises and positions which they espouse when not burdened by the compulsions of high office. --Montek Singh Ahluwalia Former Deputy Chairman, Planning Commission, Government of India

About the Author

P. Chidambaram is a former Union Minister of Finance and has also served as the Union Minister for Home in the Government of India. He is an eminent lawyer practicing in the Supreme Court, India’s highest court. A public intellectual and author, his first collection of essays was published in 2006 under the title A View from the Outside: Why Good Economics Works for Everyone. He writes a weekly column on the economy, politics, social issues, foreign policy and contemporary affairs. He is a member of the Indian National Congress, the country’s oldest political party, and was elected to Parliament seven times from the Sivaganga constituency in Tamil Nadu.
