Please join us for the book launch of Jaitirth Rao’s new book, “The Indian Conservative: A History of Indian Right – Wing Thought.”

Right-wing thought has a long and ancient tradition in India. In this book, Jaithirth Rao, University of Chicago Booth School of Business alum, and Founder, Mphasis, traces its history, explores its philosophical underpinnings and different manifestations, and defines it as conservatism – a philosophy that rejects radical, reactionary and utopian positions and argues for change that evolves gradually and peacefully, preserves features of the past that are constructive and worth cherishing, and believes in a minimalist state that protects individual liberties even as it promotes policies that work on the ground.

This event is held in collaboration with Chicago Booth Alumni Club of India and Juggernaut.
