An ideal case study for comparative government classes as well as classes on the government and politics of South Asia. India focuses on the problems of building a new nation, especially in terms of the major worldwide issue of ethnic conflict. Analysis focuses on conflicts generated by social change in a heterogeneous nation: caste system, quotas, religious tension between Hindus and Muslims, urban vs rural, peasant vs labor. The book provides up-to-date, coverage of govenment institutions, interest groups, political parties, and electoral behavior. It examines economic policy, foreign policy, and international relations as well as recent electrons and policy development.
