India and the Politics of Developing Countries by Ashutosh Varshney
Book Description'The essays in this volume will be welcomed by many political scientists as well as more lay observers of the Indian political situation. It is a welcome addition to our understanding of the evolution of political forces in independent India and deserves serious reading' - Australian Journal of Political Science In this volume, a distinguished team of political scientists address important themes in Indian politics. These include: political parties and democratic politics; ethnic politics; and political economy. Within these themes the book discusses: the survival of Indian politics in the context of economic underdevelopment; the part played by the Congress party in ensuring democratic stability; the role of middlemen known as 'fixers'; the relationship between ethnic unrest and affirmative action and between political stability and party organization; child labour and population growth; the effectiveness of direct poverty reduction strategies against the more indirect methods of promoting trade and overall economic health; and the abandonment of economic nationalism in favour of a more centrist approach.
