The second book in the Cross-border Talks series examines why India is a democracy while Pakistan is not. Meghnad Desai identifies the revolutionary decision of the Constituent Assembly to adopt universal adult franchise as the key to the survival of democracy in India. The overwhelming desire of the leaders of the independence movement, many of whom were educated in England, was for a Westminster-style democracy. The adoption of this model led to demands for inclusion from lower and backward castes and Dalits, and today Indian democracy is a heady and vigorous mix of ethnic and immigrant gro...

The most important feature of the 73rd Constitutional Amendment is to facilitate social change and social justice among the marginalised sections of the society with the help of reservations. It is indeed a path-breaking step towards evolution of an egalitarian society. The reservation makes Panchayati Raj Institutions more participatory and representative. All sections of rural society get represented and local institutions seem more democratic. Reservation has not only inducted these deprived groups to enter into the ruling segment, but has ensured them a life of dignity. They are gradually ... View more info

Though much emphasis has been on "Development Administration", both in the Academic world and in the domain of Administration, "Development Politics" has been lost sight of. The gap between the two is narrow and very thin. The former one cannot have any impact in the society without the latter one and vice versa. At present what we see today is too much of non-issues and very little issues in politics. Yet our polity and administration have got resilience to withstand pressure and manage the crisis, though our political elites and bureaucracy have moved away from good governanc... View more info

Matters of Opinion offers an interesting new insight into ‘public opinion’ as reported in the media, asking where these opinions actually come from, and how they have their effects. Drawing on the analysis of conversations from focus groups, phone-ins and broadcast interviews with members of the public, Greg Myers argues that we must go back to these encounters, asking questions such as what members of the public thought they were being asked, who they were talking as, and whom they were talking to. He reveals that people don’t carry a store of opinions, ready to tell strangers; they use... View more info
