For the last decade, China and India have grown at an amazing rate - particularly considering the greatest downturn in the U.S. and Europe since the Great Depression. As a result, both countries are forecast to have larger economies than the U.S. or EU in the years ahead. Still, in the last year, signs of a slowdown have hit these two giants. Which way will these giants go? And how will that affect the global economy? Any Western corporation, investor, or entrepreneur serious about competing internationally must understand what makes them tick. Unfortunately, many in the West still look at the two Asian giants as monoliths, closely controlled mainly by their national governments. Inside Out, India and China makes clear how and why this notion is outdated.

William Antholis - a former White House and State Department official, and the managing director at Brookings - spent five months in India and China, travelling to over 20 states and provinces in both countries. He explored the enormously diversity in business, governance, and culture of these nations, temporarily relocating his entire family to Asia. His travels, research, and interviews with key stakeholders make the unmistakable point that these nations are not the immobile, centrally directed economies and structures of the past. More and more, key policy decisions in India and China are formulated and implemented by local governments - states, provinces, and fast-growing cities. Both economies have promoted entrepreneurship, both by private sector and also local government officials. Some strategies work. Others are fatally flawed. Antholis's detailed narratives of local innovation in governance and business - as well as local failures - prove the point that simply maintaining a presence in Beijing and New Delhi - or even Shanghai and Mumbai - is not enough to ensure success in China or India, just as one cannot expect to succeed in America simply by setting up in Washington or New York. Each nation is as large, vibrant, innovative, diverse, and increasingly decentralized as are the United States, Europe and all of Latin America ... combined. China and India each have their own agricultural heartlands, high-tech corridors, resource-rich areas, and powerhouse manufacturing regions. They also have major economic, social, environmental challenges facing them. But few people outside these countries can name those places, or have a mental map of how the local parts of these countries are shaping their global futures. Organizations, businesses, and other governments that do not recognize and plan for this evolution may miss that the most important changes in these emerging giants are coming from the inside out.

Review:

"This is a delightfully personal and deeply insightful book that will make you look at India and China in a new way. We don't often think about how local perspectives inside these countries affect their national policies. William Antholis traveled with his family to different regions and discovered how attitudes in differing provinces are intersecting with global forces. Anyone doing business in these countries should read this book."--Walter Isaacson, president and CEO of The Aspen Institute, author of "Steve Jobs" and "Einstein: His Life and Universe"

"Antholis first emphasizes the critical future role of both Asian powers. Like many others, he believes that their rise will help define the 21st century and that China and India are likely to catch up and surpass the US and the EU in the next few decades....As Antholis puts it, this is an attempt to sketch how a few of China's and India's many component parts are being shaped by global forces and in turn are shaping those forces, which has long been overlooked."-- "Global Times"

"All politics, the saying goes, is local. Yet most books about the two Asian giants, India and China, take a distinctly non-local view of both countries, surveying their policies from New Delhi and Beijing and describing developments in both from a macro perspective. William Antholis's Inside Out: India and China: Local Politics Go Global marks a rare and welcome departure from this norm."--Shashi Tharoor, "India Today"

"Antholis presents an essential idea for global business and political leaders--look beyond New Delhi and Beijing to fully understand the state- and provincedifferentiated needs of India and China. Timely, extremely well-researched, and written in engaging prose, "Inside Out, India and China" provides a concise overview of key regions, as well as actionable recommendations for global leaders looking to strengthen their ties with the world's two largest nations."--Dominic Barton, global managing director, McKinsey & Company

" "Inside Out" vividly demonstrates that the saying 'all politics is local, ' first coined in the U.S., is no less true of India and China. Its incisive and elegantly written portraits of some of the key states and provinces of India and China--and of the politicians and party bosses who run them--provide a fascinating window into the rich and complicated political tapestry of these two giant countries. Anyone who wants to understand the world today needs to read this book."--Liaquat Ahamed, author of "The Lords of Finance," winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize in history

"This book is long overdue and the level of original insight offered by Bill Antholis undoubtedly will spark new thinking in diplomatic and business circles about the importance of grass roots strategies. Engaging local opinions, audiences, and networks and thereby humanizing relationships, particularly with China and India, will be central to any successful 21st century game plan. Antholis has started a fresh conversation that is certain to leave us all thinking and planning a bit more inside out!"--Jon Huntsman, former U.S. ambassador to China and governor of Utah
