This is a book spanning a period of 50 years, from 1927 when the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry was established to the eve of 1977, which is the Golden Jubilee year of the organization. As the author points out, it does not purport to be a definitive history of the institution. Nor can it be said to be a definitive history of the economic developments in the country during the period. And yet, it weaves together a coherent account of important and significant economic changes as relate to private enterprise, and the interplay of relations as between the organized business community and the Government.
