Description - Government and Politics in South Asia by Yogendra K. Malik

This book presents a systematically comparative introduction to the political frameworks of the major nations of South Asia: India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Nepal. The sixth edition is extensively revised and updated, benefiting from the fresh perspectives of several new members of the author team. New material includes a full section devoted exclusively to Nepal. Organized in parallel fashion to facilitate cross-national comparison, the sections on each nation address several topical areas of inquiry: political culture and heritage, government structure and institutions, political parties and leaders, conflict and resolution, and modernization and development.A thoroughly rewritten final chapter on South Asia in the world system discusses the India-Pakistan conflict, the rise of militant Islam, India's emergence as a world economic power, and democratization. A statistical appendix provides a concise overview of leading demographic and economic indicators for each country.
