1 Niraja Gopal Jayal (ed.)
Democracy in India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195655613 / 9780195655612; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The Themes in Politics series presents essays on important issues in Indian political science and politics - contemporary political theory, Indian social and political thought, and foreign policy, among others. Each volume in the series brings together the most significant articles and debates on each issue, and contains a substantive introduction and an annotated bibliography. Independent India's experiment with the democratic form is unique, and the contestation over its successes and failures has found expression in a wide-ranging and lively debate. This collection of readings brings together the finest scholarly writings on several dimensions of India's democracy. The Introduction situates Indian democracy in the context of the basic principles of democratic theory, as well as contemporary debates about the relationship of democracy with civil society, cultural diversity and development. The opening essays explore the colonial lineage of democracy in independent India, as well as its inherited contradictions. Other essays on the state and democracy address the crucial question - has the state contributed to the decline of democracy, or has democratic politics undermined the state's capability to govern? Some tensions between political democracy and economic development are identified, and the impact of recent trends in Indian democracy on economic reforms discussed. Other essays examine how democracy is experienced at the local level, especially through institutions of local self-government. The concluding essays in the volume explore the future of Indian democracy as the discourses of dalit political mobilization and the forces of Hindutva seek to redefine it. 013559
