The Billionaire Raj



A Journey through India’s New Gilded Age

James Crabtree’s The Billionaire Raj takes readers behind the scenes of India’s megacities, chronicling the lives of the new elite as well as the resentment and admiration they draw from the population at large. From penthouses and servants’ quarters to slums and political rallies, Crabtree dramatizes the clashes between profiteers and reformers, in which familiar issues of equality and privilege play out in a complex system of aspiration, class, and caste.
