Democracy and Politics in Modern India

Mahesh Mandal (Author)

Democracy in its broader sense denotes not only a political concept but also way of life in the society in which each individual is believed to be entitled to equality as regards his participating freely in the structures and institutions of the society is concerned. Modern India is the world’s largest democracy, a sprawling, polyglot nation containing one-sixth of all humankind. The existence of such a complex and distinctive democratic regime qualities as one of the world’s bona fide political miracles. The present book offers fresh insights into Indian politics and, by focusing on the links between democracy and ethnic majori-tarianism, advances our understanding of democracy in the postcolonial world. This valuable book is a rich resource for anyone interested in India and the ways its leading political minds have grappled with the problems that have increasingly come to define the modern world.
