The Politics of Modern India since Independence (Paperback)

Pre-order. Despatched on publication 08/03/2018


The textbook offers a detailed, jargon-free, chronological survey of Indian political history from 1947 up to the present. It treats political structures as historically determined, induced by economic transformation, state interventions, popular movements and discourses emanating from and reshaping popular discourses. Included are a detailed index, sub-headings, maps and illustrations, as well as a time-line of the events in India's political history since independence. These pedagogical features, as well as text boxes to explain institutions, issues and ideas, and a detailed bibliography will aid student readers navigating the book and assist further study.
