This is the incredible story of Bihar's transformation from an almost hopeless state to one of the fastest growing states in India.

In 2005, Nitish Kumar first came to power in Bihar on the basis of a promise to its people that of Sushasan (good governance). And his first term as chief minister was nothing short of a miracle. He managed to pull the beleaguered state back from the brink of anarchy by establishing law and order and building infrastructure at breakneck speed.

What were the specific innovations and changes that made this possible? Did Nitish's leadership style, governance methods and political management encourage and sustain these changes? How did Nitish Kumar convert the entire development thrust into a landslide re-election in a state famously known for its caste politics? Extensively researched and engagingly written, Bihar Breakthrough is the most detailed account ever of the revival of the poorest state in India, which had been betrayed, plundered and looted by the enemy within its politicians, bureaucrats, mafias and caste militias. This is a book that captures the drama of a unique turnaround journey and holds important lessons for governments, organizations and policy watchers worldwide.
