  • Description
    This paperback edition with a new Preface is specially designed and priced for the student market. The thirty-eight essays provide every significant topic in the study of Indian politics by eminent experts. They address the links between Indian politics and institutions of the state, ideologies, political processes, social movements, identity politics, government policy, international affairs, and the academia. The success of India's democratic political system despite immense and multidimensional diversity and differences has been a subject of longstanding academic debate and analysis. In the last few decades, in an increasingly globalized and multicultural world, India has carved its position as a global economic and political power, and Indian polity and society have witnessed rapid transformation in terms of structure, processes, success, and failures. Grasping this swift and phenomenal change is a mammoth task, and The Oxford Companion to Politics in India is the best resource to capture the macro as well as micro view of Indian politics in a global world. Specially designed and priced to serve the needs of students and teachers of Indian politics, this unprecedented survey presents in one volume, thirty-eight essays on every theme of Indian politics written by experts in the field, and a substantial new Preface for the student readers. Clustered into eight sections, these essays address the links between Indian politics and institutions of the state, ideologies, political processes, social movements, identity politics, government policy, international affairs, and the academia. Weaving together historical narratives with fresh analyses, this volume provides an accessible yet deeply researched narrative of politics in modern India. Special Features A new Preface by volume editors aimed at student readership. In-depth explanations of every significant theme in Indian politics in a single volume. Contributors are renowned international experts in their fields. Topics examined in an accessible yet analytical manner. Key reading for courses on Indian government and politics.

    Must for students and scholars in indian politics

    First of all thanks to Oxford for making this copy truely economical. The book is a collection of most relevant issues of politics in India. The papers are well written and referenced. The divisions give a wonderful overview of the concepts of Indian politics ranging from macro factors to local and micro factors. One can pick up things s/he needs and then go on searching for more references from the book!

    What a book!!!

    I wont kill the joy of reading this book by tagging its usefulness with respect to some examination. I just loved going though so many essays written by eminent scholars. The book has added so much to my understanding about the society and I would recommend it to anyone who has been reading on the topic but now wants something more. I wont recommend it to beginners as the writers seem to assume that the reader is well acquainted with the topics.

    I have particularly liked the essays of social...
