    This is an excellent article informing us of important research. Thank you for the link!

    Having said that, the results are not surprising to anyone well read in missiology and mission biographies. I could give examples from many lands about how missions have blessed societies in many ways, not just democracy, but consider Japan alone: the first modern medical clinic was started by Missionary Hepburn, the modern educational system was founded by missionaries, the agricultural system of Hokkaido (my island) was taught by a Christian layman, etc.

    A great book on how William Carey transformed India, in particular concerning the status of women, is The Legacy of William Carey: A Model for the Transformation of a Culture, by Vishal and Ruth Mangalwadi.
