Description - Neo-Liberal Strategies of Governing India by Ranabir Samaddar

Neo-liberal Strategies of Governing India and its companion volume Ideas and Frameworks of Governing India tell the story of governance in independent India and address the critical question: how is a post-colonial democracy governed? Further, they attempt to understand why the process of governing a post-colonial democracy, particularly in the neo-liberal age, should be studied as the central question within the history of post-colonial democracy. The volumes offer hitherto unexplored analyses of governance - political and ideological aspects along with technological characteristics - in a historical framework.

This volume discusses:

  • a contemporary history of democracy - ways of governing, resistance and their engagement
  • political economy, development and neo-liberal governance
  • governance as a strategy of accommodating claims and facilitating accumulation

In breaking new ground in the study of what constitutes the political subject, these volumes will be indispensable to scholars, researchers and students of politics, public administration, development studies, South Asian studies and modern India.
