This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume, which is about the situation of India in the context of globalisation. This volume argues that India is much more than a state and explains that it has a long history that has had a tremendous impact on the society, culture, politics and economy of this vast country and our perceptions of it. It examines how globalisation has brought about change in India and suggests that it can be argued that globalization has promoted and not challenged modernity.

Keywords: India; globalisation; society; culture; politics; economy; change; modernity
