Walden Bello traces the rise of the present-day Hindu nationalist movement from its marginal origins at the time of Indian independence to its formidable present domination of the political landscape.
The author traces the roots and roles of the torch bearers of the Hindutva movement -- a political party, a vanguard organization, and a militant mass movement -- which have drastically changed from the political mechanisms and ideals of post-Independence India and the erstwhile dominant party, Congress.

The Future in the Balance: Essays on Globalization and Resistance
By Walden Bello
Publisher: Food First and Focus on the Global South
Date of Publication: May 2001
"The Future in the balance clearly and eloquently explains the true causes of the financial crisis-the institutions that advocated free market economies based on the principles of liberalization, deregulation and privatization. Bello tells the truth about the world trade Organization, international Monetary fund and the World Bank, and their grip on the third world. He shatters the myths of development as prescribed by these institutions and offers possibilities of another world based on fairness and justice."

A Siamese Tragedy argues that, even before the economic collapse of 1997-1998, the Thai economy had feet of clay. Walden Bello and his co-authors show how vested interests, local and international, propelled the Thai people down a particular path which is unsustainable in terms of human exploitation, social disruption, and economic fragility. Thailand, like the rest of the worls needs to re-think the fundamentals of its economic model.

This volume is a product of a collaborative research project organised by four Asian regional Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs). The idea for this undertaking came in the aftermath of the November 1994 meeting of the APEC in Bogor, Indonesia. a planned parallel NGO forum in Jakarta was marginalised by the Suharto government, while the media glossed over the social and environmental implications of what would be the world's largest free trade area.
