The Painful Transition gives a detailed overview of internal group conflicts and dynamics. It discusses various middle class segments and their conflicts with one another. My difficulty with this analysis is that it only considers different objective variables between groups insofar as they aggravate those of another. It is a book about class conflict that claims to be about middle class development. The writing is tired and at times it is almost painful to see the great lengths the author has gone to stylistically to make the prose more engaging. There are desperately dull sentences bursting with outlandish vocabulary- it is almost as though Achin Vanaik has written this book using only the thesaurus and The Communist Manifesto for reference.It was not a complete disaster, and certainly there are interesting points made on the industrial-agrarian divide, but for a historical account of the Indian middle class, this book is intensely disappointing.
