Review:


"This study is crucial in the context of a growing interest in the peculiarities of the Indian democracy. Its chief concern lied in its bringing into focus the conversation between modern democracy and older structures rooted in rural society, as against the premise of the essential incompatibilityof a modernizing Indian elite and village society."--Chicago South Asia Newsletter
