South Asian countries have experienced much struggle and widespread political changes since 2008. While Bhutan made the transition from monarchy to constitutional democracy, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Myanmar moved from praetorian to civilian regimes. Monarchy came to an end in Nepal and Maldives became a presidential republic even as Afghanistan, India, and Sri Lanka witnessed their democracies at crossroads. Did such political events of great magnitude change only political dispensations in these countries? Or did they actually inspire new political discourse and create a new vision among the political class? This volume posits the vital question on constitutionalism and democratic development against a brief historical backof each country in the region. Timely, authoritative, and analytical, it is a major scholarly addition to the polity of South Asia. Printed Pages: 232.
