Offering a rare insight into how legendary educational institutes are built and nurtured, this book is a must-have for all management institutes and, of course, aspirants.

The first-ever Indian Institute of Management was established in Calcutta in 1961 as part of an ambitious plan to introduce management education in India. Initially set up with the help of a Ford Foundation grant, in collaboration with MITs Sloan School of Management, the Institute gradually struck out on its own and soon became instrumental in defining and structuring management education in the country.

Citizens and Revolutionaries: An Oral History of IIM Calcutta is a commemorative volume that comprises a selection of oral-history interviews, memoirs, archival documents and photographs. It traces the evolution of this Institute, examines its phenomenal successes and the role it has played in shaping contemporary India. A diverse group of people founders, alumni, staff have been featured in this book, including Warren Bennis, William Pounds, Ashok Mitra, Barun De, Hiten Bhaya, Ishwar Dayal, Krishna Palepu, Ajit Balakrishnan and Ramachandra Guha.
