Making Meritocracy

Lessons from China and India, from Antiquity to the Present

Edited by Tarun Khanna and Michael Szonyi

Modern South Asia

  • Includes experts from a range of intellectual perspectives—political science, history, philosophy, anthropology, economics, and applied mathematics
  • Explores the philosophical underpinnings of meritocracy in China and India, contemporary debates about how to overcome obstacles to meritocracy, and prognoses for the future
  • Argues that contemporary debates in highly-developed nations over meritocracy are not novel aspects of modern industrial society, but an unconscious echo chamber of questions that have been explored in other societies throughout history
