Description - Democratic Governance in India by Niraja Gopal Jayal

The increase of assertions of identity and their political mobilization, and the economic reforms of 1991, are the two most significant trends in Indian politics and society over the last decade of the twentieth century. This book examines the consequences of these political trends on the way in which the state, and problems of governance are approached and conceptualized. The contributors consider the actors in the governance process - the state, market and NGO's - through the window of policies and programmes of poverty reduction. They also cover the politics of identity: * the impact of the nation-state by globalization and political identity * the role of 'identities' vs 'interests' in the course of development * the upsurge of caste-based identity * the limitations of the Dalit movement
