Bringing together essays critical in contemporary development discourse, this volume addresses the broad themes of development as freedom, equality and human ascent within the framework of democracy and decentralised governance. The first seven essays interrogate and critique the ideas of democracy, development and its translation into the pursuit of growth that is market driven and measured exclusively in terms of GNP.

As mentioned in the beginning of the “Acknowledgement”, I found a general absence of political sense in the tribes of North-east India when I was conducting extensive and intensive field study to understand the socio-cultural characteristics of the Buddhist tribes of Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim. (I had earlier studied a similar aspect amongst the Tibetans in India—both refugees and traditional settlers, who had come as traders many centuries back and become Indian citizens). These tribal communities are vehemently conscious of their language, culture and way of life and their “politic... View more info

It reaches deeper into the customer psyche, reaching beyond superficial research averages, beyond articulating needs and wants based on convention, to what motivates and inspires them. And as a result, learns to work on their terms -- inverting the way we do business, pull rather than push, understanding where, when and how they want to do work with us. It ... View more info

Violence is usually located outside the democratic domain. Its recurrence is understood as a direct threat to democracy. Democracies are called upon to 'manage', 'tackle', or 'deal with' it, not necessarily through democratic means. Today, democracy is sought to be 'exported' across continents by waging war on countries that, according to the exporting countries of the West,are yet to become democratic. This book contests and demystifies the celebrationist understanding of democracy and argues that violence is embedded in democracy as much as democracy is embedded in violence. Their interconne...

Decentralisation is necessary for social justice and people's participation in decision making. People must be provided political literacy. It is unrealistic to expect illiterate and ill-informed people to understand political literacy. It is unrealistic to expect il... View more info

Pakistan was not born as a military state but the military has ruled the country more than the civilians in its short history. After partition, the military shaped the politics of Pakistan in several ways. Set of causes – historical, institutional and societal – are attributed to the decline of democratic institutions and the rise of military as the dominant political institution in Pakistan. Due to the ascent of military regimes, Pakistan did not follow the dominant paradigm of separation of civil-military institutions where the military plays a subservient role to the civilian authority....
