The Writings of James Manor: Politics and State-Society Relations in India is a definitive collection of essays which depicts Manors range of interests. They are divided into five sections. The first is a commentary on the emergence of a consolidated democracy in India, and discusses two major themespolitical awakening and political decaywhich, together with political regeneration, forms the three key processes at work in Indian politics over the past forty years.If one aspect of the management of democratic affairs is linked to the Indian voters and their shifting political choices, the other is where political leaders step in; and Manor is equally interested in both. He devotes three sections to the nature of political parties, the trends of regional politics, and how, at all these levels, political actors manage the challenges of governance. He addresses the regional dynamics of politics through the lens of political leadership in the fourth section. In the last section, he comments on the more recent phase of Indian politics.The Foreword by Niraja Gopal Jayal is a fitting tribute from a colleague. A celebration of the singular scholarship of one of the leading chroniclers of Indian politics, this will be invaluable for students, teachers and everyone interested in the politics of India. Printed Pages: 384.
